Kenny Wayne Shepherd returns to The Experience Hendrix Tour

Kenny Wayne Shepherd returns to The Experience Hendrix Tour.  Hailed by critics and fans alike as the 'Guitar Event Of The Year,' the multi-artist celebration known as the Experience Hendrix Tour is set to return this September and October with a 24-date cross-country tour starting in Jimi Hendrix's hometown of Seattle.

This year's outing marks the 20th anniversary of the Experience Hendrix Tour and brings the music of Jimi Hendrix to audiences in the Pacific Northwest, California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and eastward through Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee concluding in Georgia and Florida. Most fittingly, the tour kicks off on September 19 in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix's hometown, at the Paramount Theater.

Kenny Wayne Shepherd is one of the major players in forthcoming edition of the Experience Hendrix Tour and a veteran of previous EH's outings "I'm excited to rejoin the Experience Hendrix tour this year,” says Shepherd, "It's always been a great tour with exceptional artists honoring Jimi Hendrix, the greatest guitar player of all time, and his amazing and expansive catalog of songs. Being able to do a tour with friends always makes for a great time and this show is not to be missed."

Other notable artists who are part of the tour this time out include the legendary blues icon Taj Mahal, Zakk Wylde, founder of Black Label Society and most recently part of the reformed Pantera, Mississippi-born blues wunderkind Christone "Kingfish” Ingram, guitar greats Eric Johnson and Dweezil Zappa, Mato Nanji from Indigenous, Calvin Cooke and Chuck Campbell of the Slide Brothers, standard bearers of the "sacred steel" musical tradition, and vocalist Henri Brown.
