Topic: Kenny Wayne Shepherd Backroads Tour

Renowned blues and rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd—along with a film crew, a portable recording studio and producer Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads)—embarked on a ten-day journey into the heart of the American South, documenting and recording an impressive lineup of blues veterans. Warner Bros./Reprise Records releases the resulting documentary and accompanying live CD Ten Days Out (Blues From The Backroads) to acclaim. Beginning in March, Shepherd will embark on a national tour along with several of the legendary blues musicians featured in the documentary including Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Bryan Lee and Buddy Flett. The tour will kick off March 13 in Austin and feature performances in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Seattle and Chicago. Major PBS markets around the country are airing Ten Days Out (Blues from the Backroads) throughout the winter and spring of 2007 including confirmed dates in Nashville, Louisiana, Denver, Milwaukee, Mississippi and Georgia.
