Buddy Guy

Tue, 30. Oct 2018, 9.45 PM | Pure Blues
Event Halle, Messe Basel

The latest CD by bluesman and guitarist Buddy Guy is entitled «The Blues Is Alive And Well». That's a fact, and it’s thanks in no small measure to Guy himself. He's been playing the guitar for sixty years and now personifies the Chicago Blues the raw and direct music from the south side of the Windy City like no other. Singer Beth Hart hails from L.A. But with her there's no question of Californian frivolousness: her sound is raw, black and haunting. Her music tells tales of turbulent lives, ups and downs, heaven and hell. She too sings the blues but the blues of the 21st century.

Tue, 06. Nov 2001, 9.45 PM | Blues & Gospel
Festsaal Messe Basel

The blues evening has a great tradition at our festival – but in the year 2001 it received a very special flavour: namely through the combination with gospel. Buddy Guy and the «Blind Boys of Alabama», only appear to be from different musical worlds, because blues and gospel were (and are) two sides of the same medal in an African-American life: Saturday night and Sunday morning. Additionally, with Guy and the «Blind Boys» we had protagonists on the stage who know how to continually reinvent themselves even after decades of stage experience.

Two more blues treats were included as special guests, John Hammond and David Lindley.
