Sonny Landreth

Southwest Louisiana-based guitarist, songwriter, and singer Sonny Landreth is a musician's musician whose unorthodox virtuosic slide guitar style is unique and unforgettable. He plays with the slide on his little finger, using the other fingers to fret notes on the guitar's neck, all while playing chords and melodies in his right hand. A formidable studio musician, Landreth has built up a loyal following among his fans and musical peers.  Just as Muhammad Ali once boasted that he could "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee," Sonny can make his slide guitar “roar like a rocket ship and dance like a ballerina.”  Sonny will feature songs from his newest album Bound by the Blues with his electric trio for this show. The songs return to the slide guitarist's musical roots, presenting a bold, big-sounding collection of tracks that swagger like the best of classic rock, climb to stratospheric heights of jazz informed improvisation, and inevitably remain deeply attached to the elemental emotional and compositional structures that are at the historic core of the blues.
