In the early 1980s, guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer, Jeff Tweedy joined a rockabilly band called The Plebes. The Plebes changed their name to The Primitives in 1984, and subsequently to Uncle Tupelo. After releasing four albums, the band broke up in 1994. Later that year, Tweedy formed Wilco with John Stirratt, Max Johnston, and Ken Coomer. Wilco has released eight albums, including 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot', 'A Ghost Is Born', 'Sky Blue Sky' and 'Wilco (The Album)', all of which received major critical praise and commercial success. The band also released two collaboration albums with Billy Bragg and one with The Minus 5.  

Jeff Tweedy has been the recipient of two Grammy Awards, including Best Alternative Album for 'A Ghost Is Born'. Tweedy has also participated in a number of side groups including Golden Smog and Loose Fur, published a book of poems, and released a DVD of solo performances. He was originally influenced by punk and country music, but has more recently reflected more cutting-edge experimental themes in his music. He puts on a terrific live act - one not to be missed at this year's RBC Bluesfest.
