We have a wonderful winter line-up for you:
On Saturday, Feb. 9, we have the fabulous Holmes Brothers from Washington D.C. for a maritime exclusive show at George’s Roadhouse in Sackville, NB. The Holmes Brothers perform a brilliant confabulation of blues, soul and gospel that grabs you in the gut and moves you one step closer to heaven…or, at the very least, to the dance floor. Help us celebrate Black History Month with one of the most storied names in the blues. For more on the band, please visit: www.holmesbrothers.com.
On Friday, March 8, we have our favourite Maritime bluesman Garrett Mason (son of Dutch) and his band at George’s Roadhouse. This year, Garret is coming later than usual for his annual roof and foundation check of the Roadhouse…but we expect nothing less than a thorough check-up of the Blues from one of its finest practitioners in Canada. For more on Garrett, please visit: www.garrettmason.com.
On Friday, April 11, we have one of living legends of the Chicago Blues scene, Jimmy Burns and his band performing at George’s Roadhouse. Jimmy has played it all: blues, funk, soul, R&B, and played them with verve and grit for over 50 years. Watch him with his veteran Chicago band as he tours the Maritimes in support of his third release on Delmark Records. For more on Jimmy, please see: http://www.jimmyburnsband.com/.
'hope to see you at all the shows.
