the venue to confirm the show!
NAC Presents
Andrea Ramolo
National Arts Centre, 1 Elgin Street
Thursday, November 9 @ 8:30 pm; $25

Andrea Ramolo, one half of acclaimed Canadian folk-pop duo Scarlett Jane, has a new solo album, “Nuda” (Italian for naked). The album emerged out of a deep depression following a romantic breakup and a shift in her artistic path; but brought about a hugely positive metamorphosis, personally and creatively
Born in Toronto to Italian immigrants Andrea began her artistic life as a dancer and actress, but picked up the guitar in 2003 when her mom was going through breast cancer treatment “to heal myself and do something productive.” The rudimentary country-folk tracks ended up on her 2008 debut, “Thank You For The Ride”. She followed it up in 2011 with the Tim Thorney-produced “The Shadows and the Cracks”, which earned her a nomination at the Canadian Folk Music Awards.

She then formed Scarlett Jane with Cindy Doire and spent five years extensively touring behind two albums, 2012’s Stranger and 2015’s eponymous offering, earning accolades from press and fellow musicians across the country and two more CFMA nominations.

Competing against more than 100 other artists from around the world, she earned penultimate honours and put the music world on notice that there was a new rising new star to reckon with. Ever since, she has been moving from strength to strength, releasing three critically acclaimed albums, touring widely, and racking up an impressive array of awards and accolades along the way.

Whether it’s in a nightclub or a concert hall, Shakura always makes the stage her own. With a warm and welcoming personality, stunning visual style, and an unforgettable voice, she takes audiences on a sublime and soulful journey that lingers on long after the lights have come up. She’s an artist who never stops exploring her muse - ever searching for the next great song, and the next audience to sing it to.

Red Maple Blues Blues Dances

It is with great sadness that Red Maple Blues must announce that we must cancel our 'Four Years at Fleur' party that we had scheduled for this upcoming Wednesday, November 1 and all other dances at this venue. The Tea House has been sold and, unfortunately, the new owner is not interested in continuing our 'odd Wednesday' dances. We regret to announce this as we had really been looking forward our community celebration as we know you were.

RMB definitely plans to continue hosting dances and events and will be in touch to inform you about the new details. We're currently looking for a new home. Know of a venue, that you feel would be a good fit and may be receptive? Contact us via FB message or at ottawaredmapleblues@gmail.com

In the meantime, we'd like to remind you that we're hosting the late night at the OSDS Anniversary dance and would like to see you there!
Stay tuned and thanks so much for your understanding.

Jesse Roper
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Wednesday, November 15, 8-11:30 pm;

Neat Coffee Shop, Burnstown ON
Friday, November 17, 8-11 pm; $20

Victoria BC's Jesse Roper is magnetic. With an explosive live show, the genuine quality and charisma of his versatile blues rooted soul, rock and country funk is as approachable as his charm. Since the release of his sophomore album “Red Bird” in 2015, Jesse Roper has been riding a surge of momentum that has kept the wheels on his faithful van turning as he becomes a major festival draw. Besides his success with touring, Jesse Roper was chosen to compete at the 2016 International Blues Challenge in Memphis TN and became a finalist favorite in BC’s Peak Performance Project. The nostalgic may appreciate his throw-back vibe akin to Stevie Ray Vaughan and vintage Texas blues, however, Jesse Roper's music remains current, his fiery energy captivating audiences while his knock-out live performance blows them away.

NAC Presents
Samantha Martin & Delta Sugar
National Arts Centre 4th Stage, 1 Elgin Street
Saturday, November 18 @ 8 pm; $25

Bubbling up from the cauldron of roots Americana music, Samantha Martin is an artist of extraordinary power, gravitas and deep-seated emotion. On first listen, one is immediately struck by the awesome presence and sheer magnitude of her other worldly voice.
As a vocalist, her roots lie squarely within the wellspring of powerful, strong woman’s voices embodied by such forbears as Marion Williams, Mavis Staples, Etta James, Tina Turner, Bettye LaVette, Lucinda Williams and, perhaps most closely, Bonnie Bramlett. As a songwriter, she draws on black gospel and southern soul with a hint of roots country and sixties pop while her lyrics suggest an old soul with wisdom beyond her years.

Her success is a combination of rare talent and hard work. Martin’s past includes a solo album (2008) and full-length roots-rock album with then-band ‘The Haggard’ (2012) as well as four Maple Blues Award nominations in 2016. Few artists are able to incorporate such broad genres successfully and present a cohesive sound all their own.
Jack de Keyzer
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Saturday, November 18

Guitarist, Singer, Song Writer Jack de Keyzer plays the blues world-wide, from Alert, Arctic Circle to Puerto Escondido, Mexico; from Athens, Greece to Hornby Island, BC and many points between. One of Canada’s most awarded and in demand live performers and session guitarists, Jack has released 9 CD’s and 1 DVD. He is an exciting live performer, soulful vocalist and world-class song writer and performs an average of 120 shows per year. A much-celebrated musician, de Keyzer has been nominated for the JUNO (Blues Album of the Year) 5 times and won the JUNO twice in 2003 and 2010. He has won 7 Maple Blues Awards, first place in the International Songwriting Competition and won CBC’s Great Canadian Blues Award from a poll of radio listeners. Always touring with an incredible band, Jack will have you rocking in your seat and swaying to his hot blues, soulful R&B and cool soul jazz.  World class. 
NAC Presents
With Begonia
NAC Babs Asper Theatre, 1 Elgin Street
Tuesday, November 21 @ 7:30 pm

Whitehorse's brazen sonic breadth encompasses psychedelic surf, arid border rock, lo-fi ingenuity and icy ‘80s sparseness. New album, “Panther In The Dollhouse”, brings a twist to Whitehorse's studio approach with the addition of beats and bleeps from NYC hip-hop production duo Like Minds (Kanye West, Snoop Dogg). But while each new album sees the duo's sound evolve, the essence of Whitehorse's musical identity remains their dizzying guitar playing and vocal chemistry.
On “Panther In The Dollhouse”, Whitehorse delves deep into body politics and explores questions of consent, self-determination and, ultimately, freedom, largely from the perspective of women. Layers of retro psychedelic pop bubble up on ‘Nighthawks’, a song that explores the constructs of perpetrator and victim on the streets. “Panther In The Dollhouse” is packed with inventive sonic elements and neo-noir drama, full of flawed characters, foiled plans and anti-fairytales.
Rainbow’s 33rd Anniversary Party
Hosted by David Gogo
Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street
Friday, November 24

Celebrate the Rainbow’s 33rd Anniversary with David Gogo, 2017 Maple Blues Awards Guitarist of the Year!

David Gogo's groove-fueled blend of blues and rock is the basis for a singular and storied music career. His songs have been featured in film and television and are regularly played on blues radio programs the world over. He has earned numerous Canadian blues accolades, including five JUNO nominations, a Western Canadian Music Award, a CBC Saturday Night Blues Award, and multiple Maple Blues Awards. He has thirty years of performing and hundreds of thousands of tour miles under his belt. He's played on stage with Johnny Winter, B.B. King, Otis Rush, Albert Collins and Bo Diddley. He has opened for George Thorogood, ZZ Top, The Tragically Hip, Buddy Guy, Charles Bradley, Robert Cray, and Jimmy Vaughan among many others. Gogo can swap road stories for as long as you can listen!
The Steve Berndt Quartet
La Nouvelle Scene, 333 King Edward Ave
Friday, November 24 @ 7:30 pm; $25

Join jazz vocalist/trombonist Steve Berndt for a review of compositions to be recorded on his upcoming solo jazz album accompanied by three of Ottawa's best jazz musicians: Ken Kanwisher on bass, David Pontello on drums and guitarist Alex Moxon.

Featuring original songs from his two-album set with Brian Browne, and his band The Jivewires, this concert includes brand new songs written for the new album and some pop songs performed with a jazz treatment. Also, Steve will perform “Blue Skies On Mars”, a song he wrote for a movie of the same title in which he appears in cameo as a fictional member of the Rat Pack and also as a disaffected clerk.

Steve's two bookend jazz vocal/piano albums have been on rotation on CBC's “Tonic” since release, “Déjà Vu” having been chosen as one of the Top 10 2012 jazz albums by The Ottawa Citizen's Peter Hum and “All Over Again” having been enthusiastically reviewed by Scott Yanow in the May 2016 Los Angeles Jazz Scene."
NAC Presents
Cecile Doo-Kingue Trio
National Arts Centre 4th Stage, 1 Elgin Street
Saturday, November 25 @ 8:30 pm; $25

An exceptional stage presence, guitarist/singer-songwriter Cécile Doo-Kingué blends blues, afro-roots and soul to create a unique sound. Born and raised in New York City, first generation from Cameroon, she has lived in the US, France, and now resides in Montreal.

An award-winning guitarist-singer-songwriter, considered one of Canada's most electrifying and versatile guitarists, Cécile plays an average of 150 shows per year. She is quickly earning a stellar reputation and a place alongside Canada’s current roster of great guitarists. Powerful and raw with an exceptional stage presence, she is a force of nature whose lyrics and sound make for an enthralling and intimate experience.

She has released four albums to critical acclaim, been commissioned by the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (Home, a song on immigration) and was awarded the 2013 SPACQ Foundation Edith Butler Award for Excellence in French Songwriting for Gris (2012). She’s been nominated for five Maple Blues Awards in the last two years.
The Commotions
CD Release Party – “Volume II”
Babylon Nightclub, 317 Bank Street
Friday, December 1; $10 at the door

The Commotions have sidestepped the lightweight pop craze and taken the back roads straight into the hearts of their loyal followers, earning unwavering support from the true lovers of genuine, unsullied soul music. This 12-piece, sharply dressed, original throwback to the days of Motown is an evolved collection of Canada's top funk & jazz players.

This new CD is packed with amazing talent. Fronting the band is both Rebecca Noelle (La Voix, The Peptides, David Gogo, and The Rumours) and Jeff Rogers (The Cooper Brothers and Silver Creek) on vocals. Both musicians have very successful careers on their own but have decided to bring their talents to the project.

With a sonically monumental performance and an energizing visual display, The Commotions command every room they play, drawing in audiences with their sizzling brass section, thumping backbeat, and sensitive ballads.

Come and join us for our CD release party at Ottawa's Babylon Nightclub on December 1.

With Carolyn Fe
Tuesdays, 7-9 pm
Re-broadcast Saturday 10 am – noon & Sunday 2-4 pm (all times EST)
It’s all about the Blues, Jazz and its derivatives from around the globe and just around the corner. Songs rarely heard, from the very first recordings all the way to indie artists who consciously push the envelope to the next generation sounds of the genre; some older releases will be spun - just because the album in old, doesn't mean it's forgotten, thus the "On The Side" part of the show's title.
