astounding multi-genre catalogue of music. Collectively, Bonamassa has over 30 albums to date with studio
and live recordings, collaborative albums with vocal powehouse Beth Hart, and the adventurous side
projects Black Country Communion and Rock Candy Funk Party. A prolific writer who is always on the hunt
to expand his eclectic musical horizons, Bonamassa has a limitless work ethic whether it’s in studio, on the
road, or working with other artists to spur new music. He’s been featured in every publication from Esquire
and Parade to Rolling Stone and American Songwriter, as well as on the covers of Guitar Player, Vintage
Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, and Classic Rock magazine.

Millions of us live with a silent killer. It’s called diabetes. It claims more lives than cancer and HIV combined. It’s now predicted that one in three children born since 2000 will develop the disease. Blood Sugar Rising puts human faces to these statistics, exploring the history and science of the illness.
Be the first to watch extended excerpts from this timely and comprehensive film, coming to KCPT this April. The documentary reveals new hopes, from the rise of safer and easier medical treatments to new discoveries about lifestyle and environmental factors. Blood Sugar Rising also reports on those taking action to improve diabetes management and prevention.
Immediately following the screening, KCPT’s Nick Haines explores the impact of diabetes in Kansas City with experts on the frontlines of tackling this chronic health condition.
This program is a partnership between KCPT and Health Forward Foundation.
