Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi return to Charleston in October

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Grammy-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band returns to the Clay Center Oct. 23. The show was posted to the Tedeschi Trucks Band website and the Clay Center's ticket information page.

The band, led by 34-year-old guitar great Derek Trucks and his wife, four-time Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Susan Tedeschi, is one of the most acclaimed blues rock bands performing today.

Trucks, who is also a longtime member of the legendary Southern rock band The Allman Brothers Band, has been named one of the greatest guitar players of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. His musical style encompasses the blues, jazz and world beat genres.

Tedeschi has been lauded for her songwriting and her voice, which has been described as a blend of Bonnie Raitt and Janis Joplin. As a solo artist, she's performed with dozens of artists and was an opening act for The Rolling Stones.

Trucks and Tedeschi married in 2002. For several years, they performed occasionally as the Soul Stew Revival before combining elements of their separate touring bands into the Tedeschi Trucks Band in 2010.

The band's debut record, "Revelator," won a Grammy in 2011 for Best Blues Album. Its latest record, "Made up Mind," was released this month.

The band's sold-out performance in 2012 was one of the highlights of the Clay Center's spring season. This show is not part of the center's regular season.

Tickets, on sale now, are $33.50, $58.50 and $73.50.
