When it comes to guitar legends, you can't beat Buddy Guy.
Put this blues legend on a stage with Peter Frampton and Don Felder, former Eagles guitarist, and the experience goes beyond memorable.
All three are part of Frampton's Guitar Circus tour, which is scheduled to make a stop Aug. 23 at the outdoor amphitheater during Maryhill Winery's summer concert series.
Guy says on his website that he's "78 and feelin' great," and has no plans to slow down when it comes to his music.
Never miss a local story.
He has won six Grammy Awards for his electric and acoustic guitar savvy in contemporary and traditional forms of blues.
He is a Hall of Fame musician who has collected dozens of other awards as well. He was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame and in 2012 earned a Kennedy Center Honor, the same year he released his autobiography, When I Left Home: My Story.
Since the 1960s, Guy's concerts have been described as flamboyant and energetic. Nothing seems to have changed.
Frampton's inaugural Guitar Circus tourwas in 2013 and included B.B. King, Robert Cray and Vince Gill.
Frampton is a recent inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame. He plays other instruments, including keyboards, drums and harmonica, and frequently uses a talk box, an apparatus used for modifying the sound of musical instruments.
Felder is perhaps best known as the former lead guitarist for The Eagles. He was fired by Eagles cofounders Glenn Frye and Don Henley in 2001 over a dispute about money. In 2006, he released a tell-all book, Heaven and Hell: My Life in the Eagles.
Then on Sept. 13, the Best of Jethro Tull featuring Ian Anderson will perform.
Anderson was the lead vocalist, flautist and acoustic guitarist for the British rock band Jethro Tull. Anderson recently was honored with The Prog God Award from Prog magazine, which celebrates the innovators of rock who have inspired generations of music lovers.
Showtime is 7 p.m. for the Aug. 23 concert and 8 p.m. Sept. 13.
Tickets for the Aug. 23 show range from $49 to $225. The Sept. 13 concert tickets are between $44 to $95. All tickets are available at www.maryhillwinery.com.
