Johnny Winter back on tour 2005-06

Legendary Blues guitarist Johnny Winter is set to embark on a National tour in support of his latest Virgin Records disc entitled "I'm a Bluesman".

On tour, Johnny will introduce audiences to his new material while reacquainting them with his iconic guitar playing. For more than 30 years, Johnny Winter has been at the forefront of modern blues and blues-rock, and his new CD and tour figure to add to his Texas-sized reputation.

Backing him on the CD and throughout the tour is the road-tested touring band of guitarist Paul Nelson, bassist Scott Spray, and drummer Wayne June. For I'm a Bluesman, Johnny has again paired with his long-time producer Dick Shurman (Robert Cray, Albert Collins, Roy Buchanan), as well as Tom Hambridge (Susan Tedeschi, George Thorogood). The CD features guest appearances by such friends as keyboardist Reese Wynans (from Stevie Ray Vaughan's celebrated backing group Double Trouble) among others.
