B.B. King's Blues Festival 

Wednesday, August 16 at Starlight Theatre

A little late for the Kansas City Blues and Jazz Festival, this guitar-master workshop rolls into Starlight offering a high-profile version of an all-night blues blowout. B.B. King and Buddy Guy are equally synonymous with the blues, but refreshingly, Susan Tedeschi joins the pair at the hot-licks crossroads throughout their national tour. More intriguing than her obvious guitar fluency and vocal skills is the possibility of a female blues artist (the poppier Bonnie Raitt notwithstanding) becoming a household name. In addition to experiencing the excitement of catching this rising star in early ascent, blues fans will see King and Guy perform free of a festival rubric, where they are able to expand their sets beyond the core of their canons.
