Legendary, Grammy Award winner, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Buddy Guy performs Saturday night at the Edgewater E-Center.
Buddy Guy has been a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. A pioneer of Chicago's fabled West Side sound, and a living link to that city's golden days of electric blues, Guy's 23 W.C. Handy Blues Awards are the most any artist has received. He has also received the Billboard magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime contribution to American culture, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone ranked him in the top 30 of its "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".
Showtime is 8 pm Saturday, April 18. Tickets start at $30 and are available at www.edgewater-casino.com
