Guitarist/vocalist and blues legend Guitar Shorty is a man of the people. With the ability to pack clubs and festivals as one of the blues’ most celebrated live performers (even before he had any nationally available recordings) and now among the top-selling recording artists in the blues world, he is clearly the people’s choice. Between his blistering, rocked-out guitar work and his fierce, soulful vocals, the power of his music is unmatched, and his perceptive and meaningful lyrics unique among modern bluesmen.

Credited with personally influencing both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy, Shorty has been electrifying audiences for five decades with his supercharged live shows and his incendiary recordings (beginning in 1957 with a Willie Dixon-produced single on the Cobra label). Through the years, Shorty has played lead guitar for blues and R&B luminaries like Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, B.B. King, Guitar Slim and T-Bone Walker. Although he had recorded a handful of singles for a variety of labels, it wasn’t until the 1990s that the wider world opened its collective ears to one of the blues’ most exciting performers. His albums since then all received massive critical acclaim, and his legendary live performances have kept him constantly in demand all over the world.

    GS is tall on talent. And MS Studios is as good a music spot as Portland has to offer. This will be a joy. And my taxes should be done by then… can hope.

    Guitar Shorty is the blues and the blues soothes the soul. Everybody could use alittle soothing.

    I can’t decide between Guitar Shorty or Fatoumata. Pick one for me, please.

    Having recently moved here, I’m all in looking for a job right now. Absent a job, I’m not able to spend money on luxuries like Guitar Shorty in concert, so what a total treat it would be to get to hear him perform. Concerts like this are one of the reasons I love PDX. Thanks for the chance to win.

    The Man. The Legend. I’m on for Shorty!

    “I guess music, particularly the blues, is the only form of schizophrenia that has organized itself into being both legal and beneficial to society.” -A. Korner
    Please bring more blues into my life!

    We need a date night desperately. If this would be gifted to us we would scream and should PDX Pipeline all night long during the show!
