Inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2005, Guy has influenced not only the blues, but rock n’ roll and other music styles. His impact on younger musicians, including rock stars like Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, is almost immeasurable. Rolling Stone named Guy the 23th greatest guitarist on its “100 Greatest Guitarists” list.
Guy continues to influence the course of music history by mentoring younger musicians. During the Conway performance, Guy will be joined by Quinn Sullivan, his 18-year-old protégé.
