The blues licks of acclaimed American blues-rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa are on display for his biggest audience yet in Finland, performing at Hartwall Areena on Sunday 13 Ocotber. A child prodigy who first opened for B. B. King at 12 years of age, Bonamassa has been showcasing his jaw-dropping dexterity around the world for the last couple of decades.
Born into a musical family as the son of a music storeowner and guitar player, Bonamassa received his first instrument at the age of four. As a member Bloodline, a group that included Miles Davis’s son Erin, and Robby Krieger’s son Waylon, Bonamassa enjoyed his first real taste of recording success when the band released their debut album in 1994 as teenagers.
