Kenny Wayne Shepherd

by The Staff on March 20, 2013

Upstate Concert Hall, Friday


Blues guitar is going to be in full effect Friday night when Kenny Wayne Shepherd is joined by local opener Sly Fox and the Hustlers. Shepherd is still only 35 but he’s spent more than half his life touring as a pro guitar slinger. If you’ve followed his career, you know about his origins as a SRV-worshipping, 13-year-old prodigy. The style has stayed the same but the chops have only gotten sharper. Shepherd is touring on his 2011 release How I Go, which peaked, like all his previous records, at No. 1 on the U.S. blues charts.
