The Torch

Kitchener Blues Festival (Aug 4-7, 2022) presents "The Torch", a documentary about blues legend Buddy Guy

At 83, Chicago legend Buddy Guy remains the standard bearer for the blues, an icon determined to see the art form live on long after he's gone. Enter guitar phenom Quinn Sullivan, who has been mentored by Guy since he was a kid. This stirring documentary, amplified by electrifying musical performances, charts the guidance Guy himself received from the likes of Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf while observing the Grammy®-winner passing his wisdom to the next generation.

Buddy Guy has a history playing KW venues. Glenn Smith recalls... "The first time I saw Buddy was 1971 at the University of Waterloo  . I booked him at the Kitchener legion in 1985  , the Hoodoo lounge above the Mayfair hotel in 1987 ....and Pop The Gator in 1989 and 1991. Plus whenever he played at the Centre In The Square ."
