A real friend and one of B.B.King’s favourites bluesmen, good-natured wise man and a real encyclopedia on two legs, this bluesman with his inspired primeval blues, sings with an exceptional soul voice, deep and haunting. Served with what he calls Mungumbo or JuJu music, his Blues harmonizes Detroit Soul, Southern Gospel, Latin Shuffle and African World roots. All this is performed by the brilliant, fully accomplished artist who plays beautifully the guitar, the harmonica, the washboard, the banjo, the rhythmic spoons and the kazoo! On the whole, this urban poet storyteller with his wide-ranging culture and humanity that transpire in his music and songs, all that make each meeting with Harrison Kennedy an unforgettable moment.
A soulful band of brothers – literally – Blackburn is - Brooke (guitar & vocals), Duane (keyboards & lead vocals) and Corey (drums) plus good friend Andrew Stewart on bass. They play a unique blend of Soul/Blues/R&B/Jazz & Funk - New Orleans meets the Great White North. They come by their talent honestly – it’s in the blood. Their ancestors came from the American south making the long journey to Upper Canada via the Underground Railroad in the 1860s to escape slavery - and they brought their music with them. Eventually the family moved to Toronto where their dad Bobby Dean Blackburn (keyboardist & singer) became a seminal figure on the vibrant R&B scene in that city in the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Blackburn have recorded two great albums – the most recent “Brothers In This World” was nominated for a Juno Award last year and they have won multiple Maple Blues Awards. This is their 3rd visit to BOTR @ The Cove and they have rocked the house every time!
