Steve Miller with Marty Stuart
Jazz at Lincoln Center
About Steve Miller
Renowned blues-rock guitarist, multi-platinum-selling singer/songwriter, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Miller continues his exploration of the blues. Having learned his first chords at age five from his godfather Les Paul, how to play lead guitar from T-Bone Walker at age nine, and then working with the best bluesmen in Chicago—Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, James Cotton, and Paul Butterfield—Miller has a serious affinity for the blues.
Each season he works with Jazz at Lincoln Center to present and expand upon one of the genre’s many unique flavors. This year, Miller and an all-star group of jazz, blues, and roots musicians will dig deep into classic Appalachian blues and bluegrass styles. For the first time in this series, Miller welcomes guitarist, mandolinist, vocalist, and American music icon Marty Stuart as co-host.
Stuart was one of Johnny Cash’s late musical cohorts, and he is a chart-topping songwriter and producer, host of TV’s The Marty Stuart Show, and the winner of multiple Grammy Awards, Country Music Awards, International Bluegrass Music Awards, and the Americana Music Honors Lifetime Achievement Award. He’s bringing his band Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives, and additional special guests will be announced as the concert gets closer.
