— Join Bill McFarland, Hank Ford of the Chicago Horns, Rodney Brown, and Michael Peavy in a tribute to the great Chicago blues saxophonist, Eddie Shaw, who passed away in January 2018.
The tribute will include members of Shaw’s band The Wolf Gang, of which Shaw was the bandleader prior to and following the death of the legendary Howlin’ Wolf. Guitarist and Wolf Gang member Eddie “Vaan” Shaw Jr. will also be in attendance to celebrate the life and legacy of his father. It will be a night of music and conversation in honor of Shaw’s unique style and illustrious career and in recognition of the role brass plays in the rich history of the Blues.
This performance is part of the Chicago Blues Festival preview events, and will feature an announcement of the line-up for the Logan Center Bluesfest 2018 (October 19-21). Learn more at loganbluesfest.uchicago.edu.
