Buddy Guy

With the release of his new album Born To Play Guitar, Buddy Guy is fulfilling his promise to Muddy, B.B. and Albert King to fight for the blues after they were gone.

J.D. Wilkes, leader of Billy Bob Thornton’s favourite band, pulls back the curtain on The Shack Shaker’s The Southern Surreal, the unique gumbo of blues, rockabilly and gothic Americana that marks their 20th anniversary.

She’s conquered the UK and Europe and now the rising star of the British blues scene is taking her unique gospel-fuelled vocal and songwriting talents to Nashville.

Joe Satriani

Virtuoso rock guitarist Joe Satriani takes a break from scorching fretboards to guide us through a stack of his favourite blues records, revealing how BB King, John Lee Hooker, Slim Harpo, ZZ Top, Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton influence his playing, and why he’s always on the lookout for the next Jimmy Reed.
