Arts Commons Presents:
Baton Rouge Swamp Blues Royalty – Kenny Neal – Performs in Calgary
CALGARY – Arts Commons Presents opens PCL Blues with GRAMMY nominated blues artist Kenny Neal on Friday, September 29 & Saturday, September 30 in the Engineered Air Theatre.
Blues triple threat Kenny Neal returns to Calgary for two nights of Baton Rouge Swamp blues. Raised on the blues from age 3, Neal is known for his mature beyond-his-years vocals, sizzling guitar, and fluent hand at the harmonica.
His newest album, Bloodline, proudly showcases his blues lineage with no less than eight of his family members featured. The album garnered a GRAMMY Award nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album, as well as numerous other nominations and accolades.
“I feel like I’ve carried on tradition from my dad,” says Neal. “Because my dad started from scratch, from nowhere, across the river in Erwinville. I want to feel the presence of [my late sister] Jackie and [my late brother] Ronnie as well. So it’s for all of us.”
Join Arts Commons Presents for a night of uplifting Baton Rouge Swamp blues. Watch him perform Bloodline.
