Juno award winner Garrett Mason is a true bluesman at heart. He was raised in Truro, Nova Scotia. His quest to become a blues musician started at a very early age; being surrounded by blues music. Since setting out to become a bluesman at age 17, Keith has been playing gigs around the country and sharpening his teeth at festivals like The Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival and The Dutch Mason Blues Festival. Now 22, Keith is ready to unleash his brand new sound and give the blues scene a real kick in the rear!
Having fine-tuned their craft on their many road trips to the Mississippi delta, the band's music is inspired by the rhythmic grooves you'll hear in any urban or country juke joint on a hot Saturday night. You'd better bring your dancing shoes as you will want to let your hair down and party to the hypnotic sound of the Myers Brothers Band. The album, recorded in Ottawa late last year, features Mike Myers, Stevie Myers, Pepe Lopez Jr., and guest Mark Cole on harmonica.
See you there!

concert 1: David Gogo, recorded at the 2011 Edmonton Blues Festival
Nanaimo's David Gogo is one of Canada's best blues-rock guitarists. A triple threat who also writes and sings, Gogo has been recognized through his multiple wins at the Maple Blues Awards, and numerous JUNO nominations. In fact, he's nominated in 2 categories for the 2012 Maple Blues Awards: Electric Act of the Year and Guitar Player of the Year. He's a tireless 'road warrior' who constantly travels Canada and Europe as a solo artist, or opening shows for, among others, blues-rock legend Johnny Winter. We recorded David Gogo and his crack band at the Edmonton Blues Festival this past summer.

concert 1: Flatlander Blues featuring Big Dave McLean, Suzie Vinnick and Shaun Verreault, recorded at the West End Cultural Centre in Winnipeg
The blues know no boundaries. No matter where you live and what you do, it's just part of the human condition. And when it comes to expressing those feelings through music, two artists from the prairies do it very well: Suzie Vinnick and Big Dave McLean. Big Dave, the veteran of the two, is a lifelong Winnipegger, while Suzie is originally from Saskatoon and now based in Toronto. Both have received many awards and accolades over the years and have fans around the world. Flatlander Blues was an event designed to allow these two artists to collaborate on each other's material, play some blues standards and have some fun with the musical give and take. They also added guitar slinger Shaun Verreault to the mix. He's originally from Saskatoon and is a long time member of the band Wide Mouth Mason, and also manages a successful solo career. The band also included a Winnipeg-based rhythm section, featuring Gilles Fournier on bass and Daniel Roa on drums.
