Award-winning blues artist Buddy Guy will perform as part of the opening weekend of the 2023 Savannah Music Festival.
On March 26 at 4 p.m., Christone “Kingfish” Ingram and Jontavious Willis will play separate sets leading up to Buddy’s performance as special guests. This high-energy performance will take place outdoors on the main stage at Trustees’ Garden in downtown Savannah and will feature food trucks, lawn seating, cash bars and more.
At age 86, Buddy is a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans ranging from Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy has received eight Grammy Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award, 38 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award, Kennedy Center Honors and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”
Buddys “Damn Right Farewell” tour will feature The Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner performing hits from throughout his career, in addition to his new Billboard #1 album, “The Blues Don’t Lie,” which was released on Sept. 30, 2022.
