Trois-Rivières, March 28, 2018 - The Trois-Rivières en Blues organization is pleased to announce the first two artists of its program presented at the Cogeco Amphitheatre from Thursday, August 23 to Saturday, August 25, 2018. For the festival 10th, fans are invited to a key event where blues music will be in the spotlight!
Thursday night will vibrate to the rhythm of the popular George Thorogood And The Destroyers band. Focusing on a unique musical style that combines both blues and rock, the group from Delaware, United States, is recognized among others for their big success "Bad To The Bones". With 16 albums, which 6 have received a Gold certification and two others the prestigious Platinum certification, the band continues to thrill the hearts of fans across North America with their Rock Party tour. Always as electrifying as they were in the beginning, the group members are committed to delivering a performance that meets expectations, which will kick off the festivities on August 23rd.
On Saturday night, festival-goers will be able to appreciate the undeniable talent of Buddy Guy, an inveterate artist considered as a blues living legend. Buddy Guy, who doesn’t look like it’s 81 years old, has received countless awards for his music since the beginning of his career and has been inducted into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and ranked 23rd at the rank of the 100 best guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. Having left his mark on blues music over the last 60 years, the American singer-guitarist will certainly transmit his great love of music to festival-goers.
