He has been playing in pubs and clubs festivals and fairs since 1987 and continues to tour BC, Alberta, Ontario & Quebec each year. His one-man show combines acoustic & electric guitars with soulful vocals and harmonica solos. He performs music from his original CDs plus plenty of folk-rock, blues and pub favourites. A few road stories and 25 years of showmanship make for a fun, upbeat & dynamic night of music.
A keen guitarist, Pat TheWhite has travelled the world of the Blues since the beginning of his professional career in 1998. Born in Carleton, in Quebec’s Gaspésie region, Patrick Leblanc moved up fast to the major leagues of the Blues in Quebec. For his eponymous CD in 2004, he enlisted the contributions of Nanette Workman to sing, Guy Belanger on harmonica and Jody Golick of the Stephen Barry Band on sax. His second CD, “Reviver” was critically acclaimed right from its release in 2006, and delighted his fans from America, Europe and Japan. After hundreds of sold out shows, festivals and television appearances (such as Tele-Quebec’s “Belle&Bum”), Pat TheWhite has earned a large and loyal fan base that is growing weekly. No wonder he won Awards for Male Artist of the Year in 2003 and Best Performance in 2004 at the Lys Blues Gala in Quebec and was nominated for the Best New Artist at the 2005 Maple Blues Awards.
Renowned for his boisterous musical performances and his powerful voice, Pat TheWhite will be accompanied by his regular pals: Vincent Carre on drums and Marc-Andre Landry on bass. Immersed in the rhythms of the ‘70s when wild guitar playing prevailed, the group evolved from the Blues-Swing of its beginnings to Southern Rock then to Blues-Rock but never away from its deep Blues Roots. The group travelled twice to Mississippi specifically to work with some of the most influential Blues players of the Delta. Released in 2010, their last album "Strange Fascination" unfortunately did not have all the success it deserved, given that the group had to pause temporarily to allow their leader to settle into his new family life; but they have come back stronger in 2012 with some new material and, as always, powerful and spectacular guitar solos by Pat TheWhite.
