Mississippi prides itself on its blues and its barbecue. Over the years, many establishments have combined these two natural resources, but The Shed in Ocean Springs has become one of the best known. Now, The Shed is teaming up with Harrah’s Gulf Coast to bring irresistible Southern delicacies and blues to the casino’s great lawn.
Jonny Lang will warm up the stage with soulful vocals and fiery guitar work. When he was 15, Lang earned nationwide fame with the hit single “Lie to Me.” His vocal and instrumental skills attracted the attention of blues fans and legends alike. Lang will entertain the crowd with past hits and current tracks from his latest album, “Fight for My Soul.”
Blues icon Buddy Guy will bring decades of experience to Harrah’s lawn. This multiple Grammy winner has yet to experience writer’s block. Since the late ‘60s, Guy has continued to build his extensive legacy. His latest album is 2015’s “Born to Play Guitar.” Guy’s set should give the audience the ultimate blues experience.
