BUDDY GUY – Damn Right Farewell

Friday 14 June

He will have a reached the ripe old age of 87 by the time he plays in Grolloo. So do go see Buddy Guy, because this performance is part of his Damn Right Farewell Tour. After a career spanning more than five decades, the American blues legend is calling it quits. The guitarist is known as one of the hardest working artists in music, playing 150 shows a year and putting out albums roughly every two years. His latest, 2022’s The Blues Don’t Lie, featured Mavis Staples, Elvis Costello, James Taylor and Jason Isbell as vocalists. Guy only really broke through to the general public in the 1980s, but went on to win eight Grammy’s, among many other awards. His songs, he has said many times, have always kept him youthful at heart.
