Derek Trucks was the youngest player to make Rolling Stone’s "100 Greatest Guitarists of All-Time" list. With his own group, The Derek Trucks Band (dTb), Trucks built a devoted following through two decades of touring and seven acclaimed albums. Their 2009 release, Already Free won a Grammy® for Best Contemporary Blues Album. dTb’s latest album, Roadsongs, is a live double-album recorded in Chicago during the Already Free World Tour in 2009. Trucks also found time to go on tour as a member of Eric Clapton’s band in 2006, and has played guitar on studio albums by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Buddy Guy, McCoy Tyner, Dr. John, and Susan Tedeschi, in addition to his role as guitarist for The Allman Brothers Band.
Tedeschi’s powerful voice, commanding guitar playing and fearless stage presence have made her one of the most stirring soul and blues musicians of our time. Tedeschi made her recording debut with her embryonic 1995 album Better Days, Tedeschi achieved an impressive musical and commercial breakthrough with her 1998 indie release Just Wont Burn, which won Tedeschi a Grammy® nomination for Best New Artist. Her next release in 2002 was the acclaimed, Grammy® –nominated Wait For Me. Her fourth album Hope and Desire, marked a substantial departure for the versatile artist, presenting her in the role of interpretive vocalist. 2009’s Back To The River, Tedeschi’s latest release, has earned widespread critical acclaim and yet another Grammy® nomination, for Best Blues Album.
