RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Blues, folk and rock legends Stephen Stills, Barry Goldberg and Kenny Wayne Shepherd will rock the Ridgefield Playhouse as their new blues supergroup, The Rides, on Sept. 5 at 8 p.m.
Stills, a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame best known for his time with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, got the trio together to "realize his passion for the blues," he said in a statement.
Shepherd is a five-time Grammy-nominated guitarist and singer/songwriter who has been channeling Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix on his albums for nearly 20 years.
And you may not know Goldberg's name, but you most likely have heard his music, because he's played keyboards on albums with legendary artists like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, Gladys Knight, Joe Cocker and Steve Miller.
The Rides released its first full-length album, "Can't Get Enough," on Tuesday. The band covers a generation of blues and rock on the album, including "Roadhouse" by Muddy Waters, "Seach and Destroy," by The Stooges and "Keep On Rockin' In The Free World," by Neil Young.
Tickets are $110 each. Call the box office at 203-438-5795, or order online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org.
