Jimmie Vaughan

Known for his chart-topping success with the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Grammy-winning collaborations with his late brother Stevie Ray Vaughan and now a thriving solo career, Vaughan is a leading voice of Texas blues on the national landscape. His 2019 album, Baby, Please Come Home, earned him another Grammy nomination and a Blues Foundation Award for Best Male Artist. In 2021, he released The Jimmie Vaughan Story, a limited-edition, five-disc box set and book with more than 200 photos covering his life and career.


Indianapolis-based singer-songwriter John Boyle will open the 8 p.m. show at the Center’s intimate 500-seat Tarkington theater. Influenced by Americana, 1960s blues-rock and the acoustic singer-songwriter tradition, the smoky-voiced Boyle tours nationally and has released two albums: Early Lights in 2018 and Prelude in 2020.
