Boz Scaggs Out of the Blues Tour Stops at Walton Arts Center

NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, March 27, 2019 – Amassing a five-decade musical career along with multiple-platinum albums, Boz Scaggs is bringing his newest album Out of the Blues to Walton Arts Center in a one-night only performance on Sunday, April 7 at 7 pm.

"Music has been a constant companion and I'm feeling more free with it than ever," Scaggs comments. "I feel like I've found my voice through all these years, and I've gotten closer to where I want to be with my approach."

Scaggs joined the Steve Miller Band in San Francisco, performing on that group's albums Children of the Future and Sailor, before launching his solo career with 1968’s seminal Boz Scaggs LP.

He continued to mine a personalized mix of rock, blues and R&B influences, along with a signature style of ballads on such influential '70s albums as MomentsBoz Scaggs & BandMy TimeSlow Dancer and 1976’s Silk Degrees. The latter release became a massive commercial breakthrough, reaching No. 2 and remaining on the album charts for 115 weeks. It spawned three Top 40 hit singles including "It's Over," "Lido Shuffle" and the Grammy-winning "Lowdown."  Subsequently, "We're All Alone” from that same album, became a No. 1 single for Rita Coolidge.

Next came the albums Down Two Then Left and Middle Man, which launched the hit singles "Breakdown Dead Ahead," "Jo" and "Look What You've Done to Me."
