Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks.

It’s hard to believe that Tedeschi Trucks Band has only been around for six years, because they’re the kind of group that sounds permanent. The blues and rock juggernaut released its third album Let Me Get By in January, and it quickly earned popular and critical praise. And if it’s summer, it means Derek Trucks, widely considered one of the greatest guitarists in the world, is on the road. Trucks joined the Allman Brothers Band as a teen and has toured and collaborated with a who’s who of the music industry in the years since.

Tedeschi Trucks Band is bringing its Wheels of Soul tour to our region for several shows: July 10 at the Green River Festival in Greenfield, Mass., July 13 at Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and July 20 at Bethel Woods in Sullivan County.
