GRAMMY® Award winning, platinum selling American blues, gospel, rock singer-songwriter and guitarist, Jonny Lang makes his way to Clearwater for his Bilheimer Capitol Theatre debut for a rockin’ 2 night engagement. Lang released his first platinum record at fifteen — an age when many young people are just beginning to play music. Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating around in the late Nineties.
Setting Lang apart from the wunderkind crowd was a 15-year-old voice that sounded like a weathered soul shouter. Signs, his latest release, is not merely a return the artist’s guitar-based beginnings, but an embodiment of an even more elemental sound. Beyond focusing attention on his soloing prowess, it is about recapturing the spirit of the early blues, where the guitar was front and center. Fans who discovered Jonny Lang through his searing instrumental work will revel in the huge guitar tones and go for broke solos on Signs, while those who have appreciated his growth as an honest and passionate songwriter will find that honesty and passion unabated.
Special guests The Sal Belloise & Brian Caudill Duo to open the show.
