A best-selling blues singer/songwriter as well as an acclaimed slide guitar player who is one of only two women among Rolling Stone’s “100 Great Guitarists,” Bonnie Raitt is a blues matriarch who has spent much of her career honoring many of the genre’s greatest legends. Born to a musical family in Los Angeles, California, her self-titled 1971 debut album established her as a serious blues artist and her latest release, Slipstream (2012), scored at No.1 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart with its inimitable mix of slide guitar and soulful vocals.
