In honor of his 2010 Lifetime Achievement Grammy, the Reel Blues Fest presents a special tribute to legendary Delta blues guitarist David "Honeyboy" Edwards on Friday, October 8 at the House Of Blues in Boston, Massachusetts. Edwards will be joined on stage by AEROSMITH's Brad Whitford, hip hop sensation Sammy Adams, the JAMES MONTGOMERY BAND featuring David Hull of the JOE PERRY PROJECT, jazz phenomenon Grace Kelly, SANTANA's Mike Carabello, Barry Goudreau (former member of the band BOSTON), the UPTOWN HORNS (THE ROLLING STONES horn section), and other special guests. The evening raises funds for musicians' health care and first-time filmmakers.
Price: $30 general admission; $120 VIP tickets include a buffet and meet-and-greet with the performers in the Foundation Room from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and a VIP lanyard.
Honeyboy, who at age 95 still maintains a heavy touring schedule, is Robert Johnson's only living disciple and one of the last original acoustic Delta blues players.
The Reel Blues Fest, Inc. is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001 by blues musician James Montgomery and Woods Hole Film Festival founder Judy Laster.
