This year’s festival ends on a peak with 10- time Grammy Award–winning blues-rocker Bonnie Raitt and her celebrated road band. B.B. King once called Raitt “the best damn slide player working today” and anyone who has seen her live is struck by the poetic power of her bottleneck guitar technique that brings a unique second voice to complement the emotional reach of her singing. Opening the evening is Memphis soul man Don Bryant, the songwriter behind Hi Record classics like Ann Peebles’s “I Can’t Stand the Rain.” Forty years later, he’s having a career renaissance as a singer with his new critically acclaimed album Don’t Give Up on Love.
