He’ll keep his fans happy with 20-odd gigs in February and March of next year when the blues master hits major clubs and theatres on both coasts and some in the middle.

In May, Guy performs at the world famous St. Lucia Jazz Festival held (where else?) on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia.

Guy racked up a lot the miles this year supporting his latest album, Sweet Tea, widely considered to be one of his best.

Last summer, he joined B.B. King, John Hiatt, and Tommy Castro for the Lloyd’s Blues Music Festival, formerly known as B.B. King’s Blues Music Festival.

While Guy’s blazing guitar work can liven up any package tour, he spends a lot of time in the headlining slot, bringing his hill-country blues to audiences around the world. When most folks think of the blues, they’re likely to think of the traditional Mississippi Delta sound pioneered by Robert Johnson and popularized by legends like Muddy Waters.

Guy plays a different style of blues – one that originated in North Mississippi. The droning tone of hill-country blues provides the perfect foundation for his blistering music, which has earned him four Grammys and 17 W.C. Handy Blues Awards.
