One of the premier slide guitarists performing today, Roy Rogers is well known for his sensational live performances, which have been electrifying audiences and moving them to their feet everywhere from the Montreux Jazz Festival to his years of touring with John Lee Hooker's Coast to Coast Blues Band. Tonight's show has Roy and his band, the Delta Rhythm Kings, spotlighting numbers from his recent CD Split Decision.

Widely recognized as one of the finest practitioners and innovators of modern slide guitar, Roy has been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards as well as a W.C. Handy Award or two. While maintaining his familiar solid, roots-oriented grooves, his recent material aims for a more genre-crossing style, mixing a variety of tones and textures with a strong focus on the songwriting. Featuring Steve Ehrmann on bass guitar and percussionist Billy Lee Lewis, Roy's Delta Rhythm Kings spice things up still farther and keep the rhythms churning away.

In the words of Rolling Stone magazine, "Rogers is an exceptionally articulate slide guitarist, whether he's scorching Robert Johnson's 'Ramblin' Blues' or taking a lovely, lyrical journey...or rockin' it out. One of the rare guitar heroes who values feeling over flash."
