Blues guitarist still plays with ‘feverish intensity’

Rock blues guitarist Johnny Winter to perform in Langley.

Blues guitar legend Johnny Winter.

With his trademark long, white hair, and skinny arms that are covered in tattoos, famed rock blues guitarist Johnny Winter cuts an unforgettable figure in music.

At 67, and after four decades as a performing artist, Winters remains in top form, delivering a mesmerizing, standing-room-only performance in New York City a few weeks back. (Winter and the band played with a feverish intensity that had the reviewer comparing it to a concert he’d seen Winter give in the 1970s.)

Next Thursday night (Oct. 6), local music fans have an opportunity to see for themselves, when Winters takes to the stage at Cascades Casino Summit Theatre in Langley.

His latest release, Roots, is a collection of tracks by blues performers who influenced his career, including Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 and Robert Johnson’s Dust My Broom.

Tickets $45.50 at and Casino Guest Services. Charge-by-Phone at 604-530-2211.
