Get your tickets! Chicago blues legend Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater is coming to Buddy Guy’s Legends on October 24th to celebrate the release of his new album, “Soul Funky.” It’s his first live album since 1990, and it captures the Chief’s on-stage magic vividly, with stinging guitar, impassioned vocals, and his unmistakeable West-Side sound. Eddy is one of the last remaining original Chicago Bluesmen, playing blues here since the early 1950s. This live album was recorded at SPACE in Evanston.
He’s released a special video for BG readers, which you can view here. And if you can’t make it to Legends for the big night, be sure to tune in at BuddyGuy.TV! Here’s the link to his broadcast. This is his 17th album, and includes special guests Ronnie Baker Brooks, Billy Branch, and Johnny Iguana.
