In late September, Blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd released his new CD, Live! In Chicago, which was recorded at Chicago’s House of Blues during the critically acclaimed 10 Days Out: Blues From The Backroads tour.
Live! In Chicago showcases Shepherd and his band, Noah Hunt, Chris Layton, Scott Nelson and Riley Osbourn, along with cameos from blues legends such as Hubert Sumlin, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, Buddy Flett, Bryan Lee and Tommy Shannon (of Double Trouble). Though an illness nearly kept Shepherd from performing that night, his heartfelt commitment to the music (and quite a lot of adrenaline) ensured that he took the stage, sharing with the audience one of the most spectacular performances of his career, and one that fans can now hear on Live in Chicago.
