So, combine the generous man and with the exceptional guitar player and you’ll smile to your self as you sit there catch one of Carson’s sets. You’ll smile because something will resonate with you. Something familiar and warm, for you see, when you do catch Carson playing, you temporarily become part of the Carson Downey Family. It’s a big family, that’s full of love and passion fuelled by music and energy. And you want some of that, don’t you? Sure, there are only 3 guys on stage, but Carson comes from a very big family of 5 brothers and 4 sisters, so he’s used to sharing and giving, probably more so then others. Thankfully for those of us on the receiving end of his many talents, the pay off for Catching one of Carson’s sets is well worth the effort.
Rounding out the night is Ottawa-based band MonkeyJunk with a bluesy blend of swampy roots-rock. Each an established musician in his own right, the MonkeyJunk trio has won a collective 20 Maple Blues Awards, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Blues Music Award (USA), a Juno, and a passionate following of fans designated “MonkeyJunkies”.
This show will have audiences stompin’ and howlin’ for more.
