Tonight @ Harley-Davidson Roadhouse, Summerfest, 9:30 p.m.
With all of the attention paid to his more high voltage work, it can be very easy to overlook how talented a pure bluesman Guy can be. In his acoustic blues, he can elicit a tear with every finger pick. In fact, his best records came from his quietist period, with Chess records in the 1960s. But no one comes to the shows to hear the repertoire. They come to see the man who pioneered the onstage theatrics later attributed to Jimi Hendrix pluck a guitar with anything readily available. They come to hear jaw-dropping solos from a man who can, and frequently has, found jaw-dropping solos in “Mary had a Little Lamb.” Guy rarely fails to deliver.
