Grammy winner Jonny Lang, a frequent tour mate of Chicago blues pioneer Buddy Guy, joins fellow strummer Hans Eberbach or a night of emotionally charged lyrics and smooth guitar licks at the Woodlake Hotel Sacramento. Lang, a former guitar prodigy, put Fargo, North Dakota, on the blues map when he was just 12 years old, after his dad took him to see the Bad Medicine Blues Band. Lang then found himself drawn to the guitar, forming a natural pair much like peanut butter ‘n’ jelly or peas ‘n’ a toddler's nostril. His first solo album, Lie to Me, went multiplatinum, heralding the Grammy win for 2006's gospel-influenced Turn Around. Before Lang gears up for another tour with Buddy Guy and puts the finishing touches on his first studio release in six years, he’ll first share the stage with Hans Eberbach, who’s prepared to cast guitar notes into the sky from Woodlake Hotel Sacramento’s open-air stage.
