Jonny Lang & Kenny Wayne Shepard play UPAC tonight


Once rival blues prodigies, now grizzled blues eminences and road dogs, Jonny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepard team up for the first time to play the Ulster Performing Arts Center (UPAC) on Sunday, June 21 at 7 p.m. Jonny Lang  is a blues phenomenon whose voice, at age 13, was compared to a 40-year-old blues veteran. He has five albums that charted on the top 50 on Billboard and won a Grammy Award for Turn Around. Five-time Grammy-nominated blues/rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd is a Louisiana-born axeman and songsmith who has been selling millions of albums since his teens as well.

Tickets for the Jonny Lang & Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band cost $55 to $75 and can be purchased at the Bardavon box office at 35 Market Street in Poughkeepsie, (845) 473-2072; the UPAC box office at 601 Broadway in Kingston, (845) 339-6088; or through TicketMaster at (800) 745-3000 or
