ABOUT THE ARTIST
Formed in 2010 with a spirit of adventure that saw Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks shelve their equally successful solo careers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, a 12-piece tour-de-force, has quickly become the vanguard of modern roots music. Driven by Trucks, #16 of the top 100 Guitarists of All Time (Rolling Stone), and Tedeschi, blessed with a voice that passionately delivers a range of powerful R&B belters to gentle ballads, the group enlists dual drummers, two vocalists, a three-piece horn section, bass, and a multi-instrumentalist keyboard player for what is a greater-than-the-sum-of-its-parts collective. With guitarist Derek Trucks’ departure from The Allman Brothers Band final at the end of 2014, the band has fully dedicated itself to expanding its legendary live performances and finishing their third studio album, Let Me Get By. This will be a debut show for the Tedeschi Trucks Band in Saskatoon.
