A major player in Canadian blues since 1982, harmonica player and singer Harpdog Brown has won two Maple Blues Awards for Harmonica Player of the Year. Dog’s latest project, the Uptown Blues Band, takes Chicago blues down to New Orleans for a vintage vibe party mixing the sounds of Louis Jordan with Muddy Waters! You’ll see why audiences are raving about his new live show, too!
Guitarist and vocalist Amos Garrett has recorded with more 150 artists, including such luminaries as Stevie Wonder, Emmylou Harris, and Bonnie Raitt. He is most famous for playing what some believe is the greatest guitar solo ever on Maria Muldaur’s classic Midnight at the Oasis. Since settling in southern Alberta in the late ‘80s, Garrett has been playing with his group Amos Garret and the Eh Team in Western Canada.
Local blues favourites Mamma B and Freight Train play the opening set.
