Legendary guitarist Tommy Shaw (Styx)  is set to release his debut bluegrass album titled  The Great Divide on March 22nd.  The album features an impressive roster of guest musicians, including: Alison Krauss, Dwight Yoakam, Jerry Douglas, Sam Bush, Rob Ickes, Stuart Duncan, Byron House, Gary Burr and many more.

About the album:
This is the story of a Southern boy who made it “big,” but always held tight to his roots. “The Great Divide is a story of love and life; of happiness and hope; of loss and discovery,” says Shaw. “It’s the story of a journey that spans generations and is ultimately about trying to find your way home.  And I’m as proud of this story as any I’ve ever told.”

Legendary rockers Styx recently announced plans for their “The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight” Tour.  Concert-goers will get to take in the classic hits along with hearing 1977’s The Grand Illusion and 1978’s Pieces Of Eight performed live in their entirety for the first time ever.  The two albums produced some of the perennial Styx hits that we’ve all rocked out to in front of our mirrors, hairbrush in hand like “Come Sail Away”, “Renegade” and “Blue Collar Man” but what’s special about this tour is that by playing both albums live the band gets a chance to play songs live that they’ve never performed before creating a true experience for Styx fans everywhere. 

Together since the early seventies, Styx continues to thrive, reinvent themselves and rock generation after generation.  Continually impacting pop culture and the music world alike the band has written the book that many tried to follow in their wake.

We recently caught up with vocalist/keyboardist/guitarist/ musician of all trades Lawrence Gowan to talk about the new tour, what fans can expect and his Canadian roots.
