American blues, rock guitarist and singer Jimmie Vaughan will perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall. For more than four decades, the guitar-slinging Texan legend has been earning his living rockin’ the blues, and nothing makes the man happier. But now, Vaughan is even more excited about his gig than usual — for his newest release he’s consulted the vast blues encyclopedia that resides deep inside of his head and come up with a nearly all-covers set best described by its unambiguous title: “Blues, Ballads and Favorites”. Self-produced and recorded in Vaughan’s hometown of Austin, the newest offering by the co-founder of the iconic, still-missed Fabulous Thunderbirds spotlights a wild array of tunes originally recorded by the likes of Roy Milton, Jimmy Reed, Roscoe Gordon, and Little Richard, with a Willie Nelson favorite tossed in. Recorded with a solid group of mostly local musicians, with longtime cohort Lou Ann Barton lending her vocals to a handful of tunes, “Blues, Ballads and Favorites” is Vaughan’s first new release in nearly nine years.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
