Blues Legend Buddy Guy Performs in Ann Arbor March 18
Buddy Guy is a truly legendary guitarist and blues musician. He started his career in the 1960s working as a studio musician for other blues legends like Muddy Waters, but it didn’t take long for Guy’s incredible talent as a guitar player to catch the attention of some of the biggest rock stars in the world. His style of guitar playing influenced rock legends of all time, including The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. Clapton has called Buddy Guy the greatest guitar player alive and said, “Buddy Guy was for me what Elvis was to others.”
Over the course of his career, Buddy Guy has been awarded several Grammy awards, the Kennedy Center Honors, the National Medal of the Arts, 23 W.C. Handy Awards, and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “Rolling Stone” magazine named Buddy Guy as one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time and included his song “Stone Crazy” on their list of the 100 greatest guitar songs of all time.

She’s been nominated for several awards and has the distinction of being the first European performer to be nominated for a Best New Artist Debut at the W.C. Handy Awards.
