The summer concerts at the gorgeous Maryhill Winery Amphitheater are BACK!
Legendary rock guitarist Jeff Beck has had one of the least flashy yet most influential careers in rock history.
Universally acknowledged as one of the most talented and influential guitarists in the world, Beck has played alongside some of the greatest artists of rock, blues and jazz, during his 40-plus years in the music industry. Now 69, he arose from the hallowed ground of garage rock idols The Yardbirds — the very same fertile soil that birthed fellow gods Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. A groundbreaking artist whose inimitable combination of primal shredding and cool perfectionism has won him eight Grammy awards and left an indelible mark on everything from hard rock and jazz fusion to rockabilly and techno, Beck has earned wide critical praised and twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
But it’s his artistry in his live performances that have made his concerts the stuff of legend. Beck, who is about to release a new album, will take his new band on the road for the Jeff Beck World Tour 2014 in April. The tour will take in Japan, Australia, and various European dates including 6 in the UK. It follows last autumn’s hugely successful U.S.-wide 18-city marathon with Brian Wilson, architect of the Beach Boys, during which the L.A. Times praised Beck’s “mastery of the electric guitar” and “gorgeous tone” and Wilson said of him that he “plays the most goddamn greatest guitar you’ve ever heard.”
For the 2014 tour, the musician whose genius for picking young talent first brought Rod Stewart to fame, will be accompanied by four brilliant musicians he brought together for the first time last year: bassist Rhonda Smith, guitarist Nic Meier, drummer Jonathan James and Lizzie Ball on violin.
At age 79, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. Buddy Guy has received 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”
Buddy Guy released his brand new studio album Born To Play Guitar on July 31, 2015 via Silvertone/RCA Records, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart. The follow-up to his 2013 first-ever double disc release, Rhythm & Blues, which also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart, Born To Play Guitar is produced by GRAMMY Award winning producer/songwriter and Buddy’s longtime collaborator Tom Hambridge. The new release features guest appearances by Van Morrison, Joss Stone, Kim Wilson and Billy Gibbons.
