Kenny Wayne Shepherd live
Anyone who heard Goin’ Home, the recent album from US blues- rock supremo Kenny Wayne Shepherd, was left in absolutely no doubt that the boy from Shreveport, Lousiana can tear up a vintage Strat neck like no other. The album is a whistle- stop tour of his influences ( from Bo Diddley to Stevie Ray Vaughan), and each cut is laced with fantastic guitar tone and incendiary playing, helped along the way by cameo appearances from A- list musical mates, including Ringo Starr and Joe Walsh among many others.
Now, KWS has announced he’s bringing his all- star band, featuring vocalist Noah Hunt, drummer Chris Layton, bassist Tony Franklin and keyboard player Riley Osbourn, to these shores in October and November, for a string of dates in support of the record that takes in Sheffield, Gateshead, Crawley, Manchester, Edinburgh and Leamington Spa.
