An Evening With Buddy Guy
Tuesday, May 23 at 7pm | Tickets start at $45

At age 79, Buddy Guy is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues. A seven-time Grammy® and 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Guy is a genuine American treasure whose incendiary style left its mark on guitarists from Jimmy Page to John Mayer. On tour for his newest album, Born to Play Guitar, this living legend is doing his part to keep the legacy of blues alive. This performance is part of the 2017 Popcorn Indiana American Music Series.

Garrison Keillor
Thursday, May 25 at 7pm | Tickets start at $35

One of the most prolific American storytellers of all time, Keillor is returning to Walton Arts Center. Best known for creating the popular live radio variety show, A Prairie Home Companion, which attracted more than 4 million listeners on more than 600 public radio stations each week during his tenure as host. With a wonderfully dry sense of humor, the Grammy Award-winning, best-selling author shares hilarious anecdotes from his own experiences growing up in the American Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon and "late-life fatherhood.” Exploring love, modernity, nostalgia, politics, religion and more, Keillor will captivate audiences with his unique blend of wisdom, comedy and charisma. This performance is part of the 2017 Coca-Cola Night Out Series.
