Louisiana blues maestro Kenny Wayne Shepherd has announced his return to Australian shores with a special run of east coast shows scheduled for later this year.
Shepherd will tour in support of last year's enormously successful record Lay It On Down, which reached number on the Billboard blues and rock charts - and stayed atop the blues chart for a massive eight weeks. He'll bring hits and expertise from a career spanning 20 incredible years, from his debut album Ledbetter Heights through to his more recent offerings to the world of blues.
Joining Shepherd on his rock and blues extravaganza is phenomenal Australian musician Ash Grunwald, who is set to add his own innovative ideas to a celebration of traditional blues. Grunwald, who was nominated for six ARIAs and three APRA awards, will support Shepherd across his three shows in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.
