Multiple Grammy award-winning musician Buddy Guy will headline the second annual Lakefront Jazz and Blues Festival, a day-long family-friendly event featuring jazz and blues artists at Lakefront Park in Prior Lake on Saturday, July 16.
"We are absolutely honored to have Buddy Guy headlining this year's festival," said Shaun Naya, event and fundraising co-chair for the Prior Lake Rotary. "He is an extraordinarily talented musician that will highlight an amazing day of jazz and blues music."
George "Buddy" Guy has a colossal musical resume and hard-earned accolades including being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He's a chief guitar influence to rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and has received six Grammy Awards, the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, the Presidential National Medal of Arts, and 23 W.C. Handy Blues Awards—the most of any artist.
