A double helping of blues rock from two guitar icons.

In a 20 year professional career that started when he was 16, Louisiana born, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, has established himself as the leading young blues musician of his generation. Millions of album sales, five Grammy nominations, and countless awards are already bagged, but the main place for KWS fans is the concert hall, where Shepherd’s shows are regarded as riveting. Power-packed performances with blazing solos and unrelenting fretboard mastery have made him a live blues guitar legend over the last two decades, always alongside longstanding vocalist, Noah Hunt. 

Opening the show, Matt Schofield’s blues sophistication, authenticity, mastery of the guitar, emotive vocals and improvisational brilliance have won him many awards as well as massive audience and critical acclaim.
