Kenny Wayne Shepherd takes to the Delta Event Center stage with a raw, rootsy musicality that's been a common thread in the nine acclaimed albums that he's released since he first emerged as a teenaged guitar wunderkind nearly a quarter-century ago.
Shepherd has since built a powerful reputation as a visionary recording artist, a riveting live performer and one of the most talented and distinctive guitarists of his generation. He's also earned his stature as one of the contemporary blues world's leading lights, standing at the forefront of a widespread revival of interest in the blues.
The deeply‐ingrained musical passion that powers his hard‐hitting new release Lay It On Down has driven Shepherd ever since the Shreveport, Louisiana native taught himself to play guitar at the age of seven, learning classic blues tunes by meticulously studying his dad's record collection. Since then, his albums have sold millions of copies worldwide and received five Grammy® nominations and two Billboard Music Awards, as well as a pair of Orville H. Gibson awards, the Blues Foundation's Keeping The Blues Alive award and two Blues Music awards. He's also scored six #1 blues albums and a string of #1 mainstream rock singles.
