BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Buddy Guy, a chief guitar influence to rock titans like Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton, will perform at 8 p.m. on April 7 in the Center for the Arts on the University at Buffalo North Campus.

Handy Blues Awards (the most any artist has received), the Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement and the Presidential National Medal of Arts.

He will perform with special guest Tom Hambridge.
