Description

Opening set by Johnny Oskam.

Shepherd attended Caddo Magnet High School in Shreveport, Louisiana. Self-taught, he began playing at age seven, learning Muddy Waters licks from his father’s record collection. At the age of 13, he was invited onstage by the New Orleans bluesman Bryan Lee. After proving his abilities, he decided on music as a career. Demo tapes were made, and a two-camera video was shot at Kenny’s first performance at the Red River Revel Arts Festival in Shreveport. It was that video performance that impressed Giant Records chief Irving Azoff enough to sign Kenny to a multiple album record deal.

Shepherd has been nominated for four Grammy awards, received two Billboard Music Awards, two Orville Gibson awards and has sold millions of CDs.

In September 2008, Fender Musical Instruments Corp. released the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Signature Series Stratocaster, designed exclusively by Shepherd.

Most recently, Kenny has undertaken a truly unique DVD/CD project, 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads. The project documents Kenny as he travels the country to jam with and interview the last of the authentic blues musicians. As they tour the backroads, Kenny, with members of the Double Trouble Band, play with a host of blues greats, including Clarence “Gatemouth Brown” and Bryan Lee, Buddy Flett (with whom he jams at Leadbelly’s grave), the great B.B. King, blues harp master Jerry “Boogie” McCain, Cootie Stark, Neil Pattman, John Dee Holeman, Etta Baker, Henry Townsend with Honeyboy Edwards, and a concert session with the surviving members of Muddy Waters’ and Howlin’ Wolf’s bands.
