Dear Friends,

We have a great fall lineup for you:

Carlos del Junco
Saturday, Sep. 22, 9 PM
The Fall Fair Tent on Bridge Street
Sackville, NB

This show is FREE.

Carlos has won multiple Maple Blues awards for his harp playing as well as two gold medals at the Hohner World Harmonica Championship in Germany. Carlos will be touring on the back of his fine CD, entitled Blues Mongrel, which he recorded with Kevin Breit (ex-Nora Jones) on guitar.

Duke Robillard Band
Saturday, Oct. 20, 9PM
George’s Roadhouse
Sackville, NB

Duke Robillard is one of the living greats of the blues. He founded Roomful of Blues, was Jimmie Vaughan’s replacement in the Fabulous Thunderbirds and has worked and recorded with Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Jay McShann, Herb Ellis, Ruth Brown and Jimmy Witherspoon. He will be fronting a five-piece band, including a saxophone player.

Harry Manx
Tuesday, November 13, 8 PM
George’s Roadhouse
Sackville, NB

We continue with our fascination with the 13th of the month. We could not resist this rare opportunity to see the Toronto-based Manx play his Mysticssippi music in an intimate setting like George’s. You might have heard Manx on CBC, and if you haven’t, you’re in for a treat. Manx plays acoustic blues blended with influences from Indian folk and classical music, and has been called the essential link between East and West. He also plays the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, an Indian variant on the guitar, which is mesmerizing to see and hear. Hope to see you at the shows.
