Kenny Wayne Shepherd is one of the formost blues guitarist of our time and I had a chance to interview him recently as he is preparing for a special event he is holding at Guitar Center in Pasadena, California. Shepherd is well known for making it big at an early age and at the age of 17 his first album, Ledbetter Heights, made a big impact spending 20 weeks on top of the Billboard Blues Charts. His most recent effort was a documentary film and album titled 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads and it paired him up with classic blues performers like B.B. King and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown for some outstanding performances.
On February 18, Kenny will be appearing at Guitar Center in Pasadena for a free discussion about his playing technique, his new Fender Signature Series Stratocaster guitar, and some advice on playing and songwriting. For more information check it out here- Guitar Center.
