Briggs Farm Blues Fest celebrated its 25th Anniversary, this past weekend, July 7-9, a major event that thousands of mostly camping fans in northeast Pennsylvania and surrounding states look forward
The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band was originally scheduled to play at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, Florida in February 2021, but due to COVID it was postponed to September 2021.
Shreveport, Louisiana, native Kenny Wayne Shepherd has been listening to the blues since his early childhood. After discovering Muddy Waters in his father’s record collection, Kenny Wayne has been mixing some rock & roll with those blues and blasting out something that catches fire once he hits a stage, because that is where he comes alive. On his new CD, Live In Chicago ( which has been nominated for a Grammy for Best Contemporary Blues Album), Kenny Wayne has been able to capture that spirit while playing alongside some of the legends of the blues.
If you have never seen Derek Trucks live, then you have no clue what is about to hit you. All innocent of face and with such a laid back stage persona that he would be invisible if it wasn’t for the spotlight beaming down upon him, Derek was sweating out a batch of new souled-out blues that kept you out of your seat and on your feet swaying for the entire set.
