Steve Winwood

From his soul-stained adolescence in The Spencer Davis Group, to the heavy dealing of the short-lived Blind Faith with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker (2/3 Cream), to settling with the jazzy world-beat explorations that make up his sound today, Steve Winwood in a rock 'n' roll mainstay. He has managed to stay on the scene for more than 40 years without copping to rock 'n' roll's self-induced tragedy and posturing. Michael Franti and Spearhead open the show. — BY FRANK DE BLASE
