Combining the blues-rock power of their bands, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Beth Hart will perform on a collaborative double bill beginning at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 2 at the F.M. Kirby Center, 71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre.
According to a press release from the venue, Shepherd is “synonymous with one instrument and how it’s played in service of an entire genre. … The Louisiana-born axeman and songsmith has sold millions of albums while throwing singles into the Top 10, shining a light on the rich blues of the past, and forging ahead with his his own modern twist on a classic sound he has embodied since his teens.”
Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Hart, once dubbed by The Blues Magazine as “the ultimate female rockstar” has produced a string of acclaimed albums and collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, like Joe Bonamassa, Jeff Beck and Slash.
Hart’s “two-decade career is the ultimate thrill-ride,” the release stated.
