Arts Commons Presents:
Multi-Maple Blues Award winner Harpdog Brown Comes to Calgary
CALGARY – Arts Commons Presents multi-Maple Blues Award winner for Best Harmonica of the Year Harpdog Brown to Calgary as part of PCL Blues along with the Travelin’ Blues Show featuring Sugar Brown on Friday, October 27 & Saturday, September 28 in the Engineered Air Theatre.
With the swagger and harmonica skills of a true Southern bluesman, proudly Albertan Harpdog Brown is a multi-award winning performer including the Muddy Award for the best North West Blues Release – the only Canadian to earn the honour. He’s been lauded by his fellow bluesmen, including Charlie Musselwhite who said “he's singing the real deal, old school blues just like you want to hear it.”
For his Calgary performance he’s teamed up with hill country bluesman Sugar Brown aka Dr. Ken Kawashima, PhD.
“After more than 30 years of blood, sweat and tears, it feels like I'm just getting started,” says Harpdog. “I'm only 54 - that's young in the blues world!"
Join Arts Commons Presents for a night of killer harmonica and old style blues. Watch him perform live. Visit artscommons.ca for more information.
