Multiple Grammy Award winner Steve Winwood is a versatile musician. Whatever he does, it's never predictable. His restless, creative spirit explores American blues, English folk and West-African calypso and also flirts with rock and jazz along the way. He takes something from everything and moulds it into his own sound. As a teenager, he backed American blues artists who were touring in England. Later he achieved success with Traffic and the Spencer Davis Group. At the end of the sixties he formed the supergroup Blind Faith with Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Ric Grech. Afterwards, Winwood embarked on a successful solo career with hits like Higher Love. Eric Clapton has always remained a close friend and Winwood played on Clapton's new album Old Sock that was released last year. This fall Winwood will be touring with Rod Stewart. For his show in Rotterdam, Winwood is bringing with him Brazilian guitarist José Neto, among others.
