Sonny Landreth 

When: Sun., Aug. 11, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $30
The lyrical playing of Mississippi slide blues guitarist Sonny Landreth recalls that of Eric Clapton, but Landreth's technical skill is merely a tool for tremendously evocative, keenly crafted tunes that draw on four decades of music making. The songs have a swampy swagger that chases down-home elegance with Big Easy swing. Landreth's latest, the instrumental Elemental Journey, represents an intriguing departure not only for its lack of vocals but for the guitarist's sonic gumbo. He blends roots, reggae, rock, jazz and adult pop and even a guest turn by Joe Satriani. —Chris Parker
