LONDON (CelebrityAccess) — Blues rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd is planning a brief tour of the UK in early 2015, including a major headline concert at the London Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Wednesday 15th April.
Joining Shepherd on the tour will be long-time vocalist Noah Hunt, plus drummer Chris Layton, a 2014 inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame as a member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, ex-Firm bassist Tony Franklin and keyboardist Riley Osbourn (the latter is the former keyboardist for Willie Nelson).
The April 2015 tour follows Shepherd’s successful 2014 European outing that drew solid reviews for Shepherd and his group.

King, Freddie King, Albert King, Bo Diddley, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Johnny "Guitar" Watson, and Lee Dorsey among others
