The Derek Trucks Band

Past Dates

Despite his youth – still under 30 – Derek Trucks is a true guitar expert. His playing dominated by his slide technique epitomises blues, jazz, rock, country and American folk music. On the band’s website you’ll find a list of CDs enjoyed by the band when they are ‘on the road’: Nina Simone, Andrew Hill, Miles, Zakir Hussain, Bach’s cello suites, Jaco Pastorius live in Paris, Aretha und Joni, Dexter and Shorter and the DVD player is equipped with Big Fish, Kill Bill or a Buddy Rich video; Quite a band, quite a spectrum!

The Derek Trucks Band has long been one of America’s leading jambands and is therefore the perfect choice for the festival’s final concert.
