“Buddy Guy is keeping the blues alive.” – The New Yorker

The title of eight-time Grammy winner Buddy Guy‘s 2018 album says it all: The Blues Is Alive and Well. The legendary blues artist’s eighteenth solo LP and follow-up to 2015’s Born to Play Guitar received a 2019 Grammy Award for “Best Traditional Blues Album.” It showcases his raw and unadulterated sound and arrives on the heels of a spate of high visibility for the 83-year-old performer: at the 2016 Grammys, he picked up a trophy for “Best Blues Album” honouring Born to Play Guitar. A truly restless and energetic performer, it’s clear that the music—and Guy himself—aren’t going away anytime soon, and you can catch Buddy Guy and his band live at TD Victoria International JazzFest in 2022.
