Before Canada’s Classic Bluesman, Harpdog Brown is on the road again we have him coming in to share the new songs from his soon to be released album " For Love & Money"
Harpdog Brown has grown a reputation as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues. These days, he’s been touring more and more as Harpdog Brown & the Uptown Blues Band - a vintage New Orleans Blues sound featuring piano, drums, sax, and clarinet. Still a vintage vibe, just a different vintage and more in the realm of Louis Jordan, Satchmo, Sonny Boy Williamson, Wynonie Harris, and Duke Ellington. Harpdog Brown is a gifted vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player. Piano man Dave Webb has been working with Harpdog over many years and they share an intuition that only comes with many hours and miles shared on and off stage. Steve Taylor is one of the finest drummers in Canada and is worth the price of admission on his own!
Harpdog has won three consecutive Maple Blues Awards for Harmonica Player of the Year (2014/2015/2016), the Fraser Valley Music Award, has three consecutive Western Canadian Music Awards Nominations, a Juno Nomination and is the only Canadian to win the coveted Muddy Award. In 2016, he was nominated for 3 Maple Blues Awards (Harmonica Player, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year) for his latest release Travelin’ With The Blues. Travelin' With The Blues released in 2016 is still sitting in the top roots and blues charts and follows his Top 20 charting 2014 release What It Is (Roots Music Report International Blues Albums). Get off the couch and some see some seriously vintage blues that’s lots of fun!
“This band could play anywhere in the world, in any venue, large or small, and blues fans of all stripes would love this show." - Holger Petersen, SiriusXM, CKUA and CBC broadcaster and President of Stony Plain Records
"Listening to and singing along with Fraser Union
is sheer delight." --Faith Petric, The Folknik
Fraser Union's latest CD, BC Songbook, is a record of life in this precious coastal land: from the significance of fishing, mining, trucking and log-salvaging, to the joy and beauty of the setting.
On Thursday, Dec 20 - we will have our last Lunch Music Session of 2018 (music by donation) with Jeremy Wong and friends supplying their ever popular jazz stylings from noon to 1:30ish.
