For nearly six decades, Buddy Guy has been an influence on a musical genre that is an American staple, but oftentimes underappreciated – the blues. This 5-time Grammy Award Winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer will be bring his remarkable history to Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts on August 22.

Guy has influenced such legends as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, the Rolling Stones, Jimmy Page and countless others. And now Quinn Sullivan.

The 14-year-old guitarist, singer and songwriter, will be performing alongside Buddy Guy on August 22 at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Sullivan gained media attention after appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show at the age of six and gained even more attention two years later when he was asked by Buddy Guy to join him on stage during a performance in Sullivan’s hometown of New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Since then, young Quinn has not only performed with Guy, but also B.B. King. He has appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Today Show and on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Sullivan also made a guest appearance on Buddy Guy’s Grammy nominated album Skin Deep, playing a solo on the track ‘Who’s Gonna Fill Those Shoes.’

In 2011, he released his debut album, ‘Cyclone’, and that summer went on tour with Buddy Guy to promote the album.
