Bonnie Raitt, one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, will headline the Deni Blues & Roots Festival.November 16, 2012 2:06pm
With the release of her 19th album, titled Slipstream, Grammy winner Bonnie Raitt is starting anew.
The album marks her return to studio recording after seven years, and it delivers some of the most surprising and rewarding music of her remarkable career.
More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music.
The nine-time Grammy winner was named as one of Rolling Stone magazine’s ‘100 Greatest Singers of All Time’.
Raitt was already deeply involved with folk music and the blues by the 1960s, and used her time at university to further explore an interest in blues and slide guitar she developed as a 14 year-old.
Three years after entering university, Raitt left to commit herself full-time to music, and shortly afterward found herself opening for surviving giants of the blues.
From the likes of Mississippi Fred McDowell, Sippie Wallace, Son House, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker, she learned first-hand lessons of life as well as invaluable techniques of performance.
Raitt’s hit songs include Something To Talk About and Love Sneakin’ Up On You.
