Buddy Guy at Penn's Peak

Buddy Guy is bringing the blues to Carbon County with his Damn Right, Farewell tour.

The legendary 86-year-old guitarist is set to perform October 14 at 8 pm at Penn’s Peak near Jim Thorpe. Appearing with him is Christone “Kingfish” Ingram.

Guy has won 38 Blues Music Awards and eight Grammys and was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.

The title of Buddy Guy’s latest album says it all: The Blues Is Alive and Well. The legendary blues artist’s eighteenth solo LP and follow-up to 2015’s Born to Play Guitar showcases his raw and unadulterated sound, its fifteen tracks a true pleasure for aficionados and genre newcomers alike. “I got children and grandchildren who didn’t know who I was, but nowadays we can play outdoor concerts and see kids that are eight, nine, twelve years old coming to me and saying, ‘I didn’t know who you was, but I read what Eric Clapton said about you,'” Guy explains when discussing his mindset around the new record. “I’m always trying to make an album that someone accidentally plays where some kid hears it, picks up a guitar, and helps keep the blues alive.”

Doors at 6, show at 8. Tickets go on sale on June 23.
