Roseland Theater
8 Northwest 6th Avenue, Portland, OR

The title of Buddy Guy’s latest album says it all: The Blues Is Alive and Well. The legendary blues artist’s eighteenth solo LP and follow-up to 2015’s Born to Play Guitar showcases his raw and unadulterated sound, its fifteen tracks a true pleasure for aficionados and genre newcomers alike. “I got children and grandchildren who didn’t know who I was, but nowadays we can play outdoor concerts and see kids that are eight, nine, twelve years old coming to me and saying, ‘I didn’t know who you was, but I read what Eric Clapton said about you,’” Guy explains when discussing his mindset around the new record. “I’m always trying to make an album that someone accidentally plays where some kid hears it, picks up a guitar, and helps keep the blues alive.”

And it only takes one listen to The Blues Is Alive and Well to realize that Guy’s mission has been more than accomplished here. The record is arriving on the heels of a spate of high visibility for the 82-year-old performer: at the 2016 Grammys, he picked up a trophy for “Best Blues Album” honoring Born to Play Guitar, and that same year he hit the road for a U.S. tour opening for Jeff Beck. In addition to bringing the house down for a recent sold-out performance commemorating the closing of New York City’s B.B. King’s Blues Club and Grill, he recently appeared on David Letterman’s Netflix talk show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. A truly restless and energetic performer, The Blues Is Alive and Well is the latest triumph in an already-legendary career.

    Buddy Guy is one of the first blues artist my dad introduced me to.. it would be amazing to be able to take him for a early 72nd birthday present.. No other man in the world deserves to be able to go see him like my dad.

      I would absolutely love to go to this show.
      I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2018 and haven’t done anything outside of the oncologist since. We plan on getting tickets but they were sold out before we can get ours. Who knows we may get lucky.

      Cheers to the lucky winner

    OMG! Buddy Guy is Great – he’s ‘the one and only’ Blues Super Hero right now.
    I’ve never seen both Buddy Guy and Curtis Salgado together, though.
    I would love to treat my friend who has been helping me during my recent surgery – please pick ‘me’!

    The man is one of the last of his kind. Truly a living legend. Today’s artists often can’t comprehend the debt they owe this man.

  11. Jamey April 11, 2019 at 7:06 pm #

    Why do I want to go? Because it’s Buddy effing Guy. If that isn’t more than enough, you’ve got a hole in your soul.

    One year at the Ottawa, Canada, Blues Fest (2010ish) Curtis Salgado was playing on one of the small stages and this Oregonian touted his greatness and rounded up many first-time listeners who quickly became fans!
