SPECIAL EVENTS THIS WEEK
****************************
Dan Dorion House Concert
Pakenham, ON
Tuesday, August 23

Dan Doiron, a Cape Bretoner and East Coast Music Awards (ECMA) multiple nominee will be playing in Pakenham at a house concert on Aug. 23. Playing on the banks of the Mississippi River, Doiron will be highlighting his versatility as a guitarist and songwriter – from straight up pop, to rock, to blues, to soulful ballads with thought-provoking lyrics, to high energy humourous tunes. Doiron will highlight pieces from his three albums that he’s released in the past four years.

A high school friend of the host, Doris Rankin, Doiron who gave up engineering in his first week of university to take classical guitar at Dalhousie University, has never looked back. After a successful teaching career he is now focusing on using his raw energy to continue his solo artist career. His visit to the Ottawa Valley is an excuse for Rankin to catch-up on his songwriting and to watch him perform in an intimate setting.

AREA HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK
****************************
Terry Gillespie
The Branch, Kemptville ON
Saturday, August 27

Terry Gillespie has been called a musical Shaman, Canada's King of Roots Music and Mr. Groove for good reason - his live performances are fascinating, entertaining and captivating in a way that allows the audience to pay attention and not be distracted from the music by egotistical showmanship and maniacal guitar playing. He is both charismatic and soulful. His guitar is tasteful, his vocals beautifully phrased and he is backed by an energy of sound that pulls people off their chairs and onto the dance floor. Those in attendance at Terry Gillespie shows are part of the show, with each audience member an integral part of the band; they too become one with the music. 
**********
Music By The Bay Live presents
Philip Sayce
St. Francis Centre, Ajax ON
Saturday, August 27
            Advance tickets www.musicbythebaylive.com

At 21 Philip Sayce caught the attention of Jeff Healey, and spent the next 4 years as second guitar alongside the guitar master.  Following the lead of a number of talented Canadian artists, Sayce chose to move to the U.S. all the while staying true to his personal quest of following what moves him. Primary among his various L.A. ventures was joining multi Grammy Award winner Melissa Etheridge’s band in 2003. He went on to tour and record with Etheridge over the course of the next five years while continuing to perform and record with his own band. 

Combine the head turning guitar skills with expressive vocals delivering on a variety musical style and you get the whole picture – an artist following his heart, making that emotional connection.

Studebaker John & the Hawks
The Woodlawn Inn, 420 Division Street, Cobourg, ON
Friday, September 16 @ 6 pm

Studebaker John Grimaldi was born in Chicago in 1952 and heard the blues firsthand from Big Walter Horton, "One-Armed" John Wrencher, Johnny Littlejohn and other regulars on Maxwell Street. "I can remember a time when you could see Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, he'd play in his own club, Hound Dog Taylor would always be around Maxwell Street. J.B. Hutto, too. Being able to see them perform live was breathtaking. I'm basically self-taught and I'd pick things up by just watching them."

Dinner and Show. Fantastic food with world class Blues. Tickets are $65 plus HST for dinner and show. Only 67 tickets are sold to these events and they sell out.  Contact the Woodlawn for tickets and reservations.

Paul Reddick
Son of Dave
Black Sheep Inn, Wakefield QC
Friday, September 16 @ 8:30 pm

Melding poetry, mystery, darkness and light, along with an extensive knowledge of the history and traditions of blues music is what makes Paul Reddick on of the most popular figures on the blues and roots music scene today. For over 25 years he’s been writing and performing his eclectic brand of blues, bringing the art form to new frontiers with his rapacious, deep vocals, masterful harmonica playing and song writing. As the unofficial poet laureate of Canadian blues, words are his weapon of choice and when he sings, it is near impossible not to listen and get lost within the songs, right alongside him and illustrating what the influential British magazine Mojo described as his “wayward brilliance.”

Son of Dave isn't you're average blues musician. He's an international cult Bluesman on a mission to save your musical soul from atrophy. It would be an easy game, sticking to cliché’s and playing a circuit of guitar-solo lovin', middle-aged divorcees. No disrespect to the working man's blues circuit, but this one-man harmonica & beat-box genius beats his own path, turning rhythm and blues upside down and gathering a huge international army of devoted fans from all walks of life. Son of Dave – born Benjamin Darvill – is half a century old now, and started out in the blues + biker bars of Canadian mid-western city Winnipeg, but has been based in the UK for 20 years. With a CV as long as your arm and a briefcase full of naughty tricks, he is on the road again in 2016 and still hasn't reached top speed. He's a long distance Bluesman, not a quick burner. He'll still be going strong through his next fifty years no doubt. It's YOU that has to catch him before sinking into your old age.

Cecile Doo-Kingué
& Wicked Grin
Black Sheep Inn, Wakefield QC
Saturday, September 17 @ 8:30 pm

An exceptional stage presence, guitarist / singer-songwriter Cécile Doo-Kingué blends blues, afro-roots and soul to create a unique sound. Born and raised in New York City, first generation from Cameroon, she has lived in the USA, France, and is now an adopted Montrealer. Cécile Doo-Kingué isn’t just another token “chick” guitarist; her talents are measured not by gender lines, but by the fact that she is quickly earning a stellar reputation and a place alongside Canada’s current roster of great guitarists. Powerful and raw, Cécile Doo-Kingué’s guitar prowess, lyrics, and sound make for enthralling and intimate communion.

Building on the success of their sophomore album “Shame On Me” released in 2013, and following their 2014 Maple Blues Award for Best New Group, Murray Kinsley & Wicked Grin released “Stormy Water” in November 2015. Featuring 11 road-tested tracks, 10 of which were written by Kinsley, this tight group of experienced musicians have stepped up their game. “Stormy Water” features spirited upbeat, danceable numbers while expanding on the heavier and grittier sound the band has been developing over the past few years. “Stormy Water” was named Best Canadian Blues Rock Album of 2015 by the Blues Underground Network and bassist Leigh-Anne Stanton was named The Maple Blues Awards “Bassist of the Year” for 2015.

The Nylons Farewell Show
Shenkman Arts Centre, Harold Shenkman Hall, Orleans ON
Friday, September 30 @ 8 pm

Having harmonized through our hearts for four decades, The Nylons had popularized the a cappella genre well before the likes of Glee. Touring since 1978, this multi-Juno winning vocal group is singing goodbye with their Farewell Show. This is one last chance to watch the legendary group perform jazz, pop and soul hits. 

Pioneers of the crossover and the mashup, these men give catchy favourites new life with creative arrangements. The act showcases the incredible voices of its tenors, bass and baritones for a sound that will have you wondering where they hid all those instruments. Hear joyful renditions of Beatles and Carole King classics, snap along to their original tunes, and experience the doo-wop classic “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” performed live on stage by a national treasure.
