Chicago to honor guitarist Buddy Guy

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Chicago is honoring blues guitarist Buddy Guy before he receives a national award for his lifetime contribution to the arts.

Guy is among several artists who'll receive 2012 Kennedy Center Honors on Dec. 2.

But before he leaves, Chicago wants to send him off in style. The city has planned to honor Guy on Tuesday afternoon with a concert. It'll be held at a park near the city's lakefront.

The distinction from the Kennedy Center is the nation's highest honor for those who have influenced American culture through the arts.

Other winners include actor Dustin Hoffman, comedian David Letterman, rock band Led Zeppelin and ballerina Natalia Makarova.
