Austin-based electric blues man Jimmie Vaughan, the older and slightly less celebrated brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan, is a multiple Grammy winner, a dedicated student and practitioner of American rock ‘n’ roll, jazz and blues, and a guitar virtuoso par excellence. Recently, he’s been quiet on the album release front, but has stayed busy touring, including a guest spot playing with the Foo Fighters on the PBS show Austin City Limits in 2015. As with any guitar great, Vaughan’s prowess is most fully on display in the live setting where his fingers can trace his racing mind and consistently inventive musical ideas upon his guitar with unfettered abandon. While blues music may not exactly be in vogue these days, Vaughan’s signature style of writing and playing will never be obsolete.
