TUFR Featured Artist Performance: Sonny Landreth
Renowned musician Sonny Landreth is this week's Featured Artist on Turn Up For Recovery's YouTube Channel. Tune in Saturday 11 July at PDT 11:00am, EDT 2:00pm and BST 7:00pm, for a very special performance at youtube.com/turnupforrecovery.
Sonny Landreth has appeared at all of Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festivals. Eric has said that “Sonny Landreth is probably the most underestimated musician on the planet, and also probably one of the most advanced.” Known as the "King of the Slydeco," Sonny's body of work has captured the influences he grew up with in South Louisiana, including blues, New Orleans R&B, and jazz. He released his new studio album ‘Blacktop Run’ on 21st February. It follows his previous Grammy-nominated album ‘Recorded Live In Lafayette’ (2017) and his back-to-back Blues Music Awards for Best Guitarist and Best Blues Album for ‘Bound by the Blues’ (2015). He is looking forward to playing the new material on 'Blacktop Run' live. “It’s all about telling the story,” Landreth says, “as long as I can find my way up that path, I’m all in.”

ABOUT TURN UP FOR RECOVERY
Turn up for Recovery is a charitable movement aiming to raise awareness of abstinence-based recovery, tackle the stigma of addiction and help make treatment affordable to people struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. The idea for Turn up for Recovery (TUFR) came to founder, Melia Clapton, while walking her dog. She wanted to tackle the stigma around addiction and alcoholism and raise awareness about the power of abstinence based recovery. It’s a topic very close to her heart, having supported family members throughout their recovery. Her vision is for an inclusive community of artists, music lovers and those affected by addiction coming together to have a good time, talk about recovery and raise money for others to get the help that they need at Crossroads Centre Antigua. Melia announced the movement in September 2019 during Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival. It has been gaining momentum ever since.
