Seemingly out of another era, our first guest, Dan Livingstone (guitar, dobro and lyrics) is often accompanied by The Griffintown Jug Addicts and their washboards, their “washtub bass” (that’s a hand-made one-string bass made of a string on a stick tied to a basin), their jugs, their cigar-box guitars and their five string violin; he draws inspiration from Jug bands of the ‘30s and ‘40s, a Blues style that is played mixing with ragtime, swing and folk. A native of Western Canada, Dan Livingstone is now living in Montreal where he regularly performs in various bars and major events accompanied by various band set-ups. During the last decade he also could be found in Europe, performing in music halls and bars in Norway, Germany, France and Belgium. He also performed in China, Ireland, Greece, in the United States and in Canada, from the Maritimes to the Western provinces through the Prairies and Quebec. Recreating the ambience of this past musical era where simple fun prevailed in musical creations which seemed quite simple in nature and themes but carried with complex polyphony and rhythms that served as direct basis for the Swing and later for rock ’n’ roll, Dan is contributing a major historical section to our event proceeding from the Blues tradition of the Piedmont, then of the Delta then of Texas and, you never know, to a more modern Blues.
Dawn Tyler Watson & Paul Deslauriers: intricate and ardent, acoustic and electrifying. That’s it for the contradictions of the duo as their great skill and the collaboration that brings them together on stage is undivided! With prestigious awards recognizing her major talent, Dawn Tyler Watson certainly deserves the title of Muse of Jazz and Blues. Born in England, this Quebecker by adoption is pursuing an international career. Her remarkable voice is reminiscent of the Grandes Dames of Blues and Jazz. The marvellous Dawn Tyler Watson, always so versatile, shall stage a performance with lots of Blues and with maybe a few surprises more into Jazz that appeal to and thrill an already won over audience, since her very first album, “Ten Dollar Dress”.
More often referred to as the regular associate of the Grande Dame of the Blues, since 2006, Paul Deslauriers has a most impressive musical career path … acclaimed as part of the 100 world top guitarists of all times by Rolling Stone magazine, also recipient of numerous very prestigious awards, the former leader of ‘Kind of Blue’, ‘Black Cat Bone’ and now of the ‘Paul Deslauriers Band.
