Join in for the Bedford Blues and Barbeque festival, closing out tonight with Buddy Guy, the man, the musician, the legend. A powerhouse in Chicago Blues for half a century, this man is an influence to many of the greats; Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton...the list goes on. I've seen Guy on 3 seperate occasions, and had a chance to meet him when I was in High School. Buddy Guy is definitely Someone you should see before you or he (he's 70+) die. Show info can be located here.
