Susan Tedeschi Interview
A string of Grammy-nominated albums, along with her appearance on Austin City Limits, established Susan Tedeschi as one of today’s premiere blues artists. On top of that, she’s performed in front of millions of music lovers by headlining numerous festivals and opening for music legends like B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Bob Dylan, The Allman Brothers Band, and the Rolling Stones.
Her appeal extends well beyond the blues. For example, she and her husband, Grammy-winning guitarist Derek Trucks, were asked to join Wayne Shorter as Herbie Hancock’s special guests at his Seven Decades Birthday Celebration at the Hollywood Bowl, on Sept. 1, 2010.
The 2010 launch of the Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band brings together two of the brightest talents on the contemporary music scene.
This interview took place just after Susan and Derek announced the launch of their new band and their intention to take some time off. I was so grateful that she made an exception and granted me this interview during her down time.
