Grammy Award Winner added to Vail’s 2012 Lineup

VAIL — One of the most distinctive voices in popular music and Grammy award-winner Boz Scaggs, was just added to the winter concert series at the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC). Scaggs will bring his hit songs to Beaver Creek on March 5 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now.

After first finding acclaim as a member of the Steve Miller Band, singer/songwriter Boz Scaggs went on to enjoy considerable solo success in the ’70s. The rock troubadour will perform hits, “Lido Shuffle,” “Lowdown,” “Slow Dancer,” “Jo Jo” and others on the Vilar Center stage.

Born in Texas and raised with an abiding respect for a wide spectrum of American roots music, Scaggs has combined rock, jazz, R&B and blues to create a trademark sound. With an extensive and distinctive career that has spanned 30 years and many accolades, Scaggs continues to prove himself as one of music’s most creative and original artists.
The Boz Scaggs show is a part of the Vilar’s winter concert season, which includes Emmitt-Nershi Band on Jan. 25, Randy Travis on Feb. 19, Leftover Salmon on March 8; Chris Isaak on March 13; Bruce Hornsby on March 24 and Béla Fleck & The Flecktones on April 6.  Tickets are available at the Vilar Center.
