Urban Ministry Center in conjunction with Maxx Music presents HousingFest 2018 – The Concert to End Homelessness.
Blues guitar legend Buddy Guy and soul icon Mavis Staples will headline HousingFest.
Winner of the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors, inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” Buddy Guy is commended as being the bridge between blues and rock and roll. His work has been influential in the music of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Eric Clapton.
As a child, Mavis Staples sang with her father and siblings as a part of the Staple Singers. Staples is a Blues Hall of Fame inductee whose 16th album was met with high acclaim in 2017.
