This week's featured guest: SAT., AUG 11TH - DENIS KELDIE

We are very pleased to welcome back, our good pal from Toronto, Denis Keldie. As a studio musician Denis Keldie has over a hundred albums to his credit, as well as numerous film and TV projects. Recent CDs include Rita Coolidge with Ry Cooder, Natalie MacMaster, Jeff Healey, Prairie Oyster, The Boomers, Eddie Shwartz, Jesse Cook, Stompin' Tom Connors, The Lincolns, The Extras, King Biscuit Boy, The Stampeders, Gordie Sampson, Etta James and TV and live appearances with The Rankins, The Lincolns, Colin James, Jann Arden, Amy Sky, Ashley MacIsaac, Bruce Guthro, Crowbar and many others.

Denis Keldie, one of Canada's foremost keyboardists, recently released his first self-titled CD. This CD of all original compositions was co-written with guitarist Bill Murray and features the extrordinary talent of well known drummer Paul DeLong. For more info on the CD :

As an instrumentalist, he plays Hammond organ, piano, all keyboards including his selection of vintage keys, accordion, guitar, bass, mandolin and mandola. And on top of all that, he's a really nice and funny guy!


As Denis is also playing in the afternoon at the Hillebrand Blues festival, we're hoping that many of the musicians will be dropping by the Anchorage to hear Denis and unwind after the concert. We hope some of them will also sit-in with us. YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!

ciao, Steve
