The Fraser Valley Blues Society presents Texas blues singer/guitarist James Buddy Rogers in concert in Abbotsford on Saturday, Jan. 23.

The performance takes place from 7 to 11:30 p.m. at the Eagles hall, 33868 Essendene Ave.

Rogers, based in Kansas City, honed his blues style by touring the U.S. with a band that included B.B. King’s former bassist. His love of B.B., Albert and Freddie King, as well as Johnny “Guitar” Watson, is evident in his exceptional guitar-playing.

Tickets are $15 in advance (cash only) at the Eagles Hall or at 604-217-2259, or $20 at the door. Visit fraservalleyblues.com for more information.
