Headliner change for the 2022 Blues n' Brews!
Due to a family emergency, the headliner for the 16th annual Sweetwater Blues n’ Brews has changed! The festival will now feature Chicago native Eddie Tuner on June 18th, 5 pm to 7 pm in Bunning Park.
Born in Cuba and raised in Chicago, IL, Eddie Turner got the musical bug when he was 12 and started to join rock and blues bands almost instantly. He would get his education by sneaking into the local clubs or hanging out in the alleys to hear the greats like Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Smith, and Chicago. A diverse blend of rock, voodoo blues, and R&B peppered with African rhythms, Turner’s music moves the feet while simultaneously haunting the soul. Vintage guitar quoted his album Rise as “personal super-modern music with verve and drive.” Guitar Player Magazine praised Eddie – “Turner’s otherworldly, atmospheric guitar style colors the inventive disc, offering a modern take on a classic genre.”
