Two decades into a recording career that began when he was 16, Kenny Wayne Shepherd has built an enviable resume as an accomplished recording artist, a riveting live performer and one of the most talented and distinctive guitarists of his generation. He's also emerged as one of the contemporary blues world's leading lights, helping to spearhead a widespread revival of interest in the blues.

Shepherd has sold millions of albums worldwide and received five GRAMMY® nominations and two Billboard Music Awards, as well as a pair of Orville H. Gibson awards, the Blues Foundation's Keeping The Blues Alive award and two Blues Music awards.

He's had six number one blues albums and a string of number one mainstream rock singles, and his acclaimed CD/documentary project "10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads" was the top-selling blues album of 2007.

Having already set an impressive standard for creative vision and world-class musicianship, Shepherd delivers his most personal project to date with "Goin' Home." Recorded in an 11-day whirlwind in his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana, the raw, righteous release finds Shepherd revisiting a dozen of the vintage blues classics that originally inspired him to pick up the guitar and pursue a life in music, approaching the material with an intensity that affirms his deep connection to these time-tested classics.

This performer will be at the Belly Up Tavern on Sunday, September 9 and Monday, September 10.
