Louisiana's Sonny Landreth is a mesmerizing master of the slide guitar. He can do it all—think three-finger left-hand chords with a bottleneck on the left little finger, and a whole battery of effects coming from the right hand. And he puts all his technique at the service of insightful original songs that show a unique appreciation of Lousiana and its culture. Sonny was the first white member of Clifton Chenier's Red Hot Louisiana Band, and other musicians he's worked with include John Hiatt, John Mayall, Zachary Richard, Beausoleil, Junior Wells, Mark Knopfler, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock, Allen Toussaint, and Steve Riley. Eric Clapton calls Sonny "probably the most underestimated musician on the planet." For years he's been the go-to guy for Southern slide guitar, and his solo work will blow you away. This is the first time in four years we've heard the King of Slydeco in southeast Michigan—he's not to be missed! Tonight's show will include a rare 30-minute acoustic set from Sonny.
