CALGARY – In a beautiful gathering of American and Canadian blues, Arts Commons is pleased to welcome Eric Bibb with Michael Jerome Browne on Friday, February 10 & Saturday, February 11 to Arts Commons at the Martha Cohen Theatre.
Grammy Nominee Eric Bibb is fast becoming a North American favourite with nine W.C. Handy Blues Music Award nominations and a British Blues Award for Best Newcomer. Known for his rich and sensitive vocals, Bibb brings a subtle, contemporary sensibility together with his traditional American roots.
In his Arts Commons performance, Canadian Maple Blues Award winner and JUNO Award nominee Michael Jerome Browne will accompany him.
"...one of the finest musicians who is well versed in so many interrelated genres... Any chance I get to hear Michael and then play with him is a chance I'll leap at,” says Eric Bibb about performing with Michael Jerome Browne.
See the “discreetly awesome” and “totally original” Eric Bibb joined by Michael Jerome Browne, “arguably the finest acoustic blues artist in this country” in the intimate venue of the Martha Cohen Theatre.
