The Clint Everson Band is an original Blues/Roots band from Ottawa Canada. Their sound is inspired from the early blues legends, modern blues, roots, rock and country. They have a feel of vintage Americana with a twist.
Tim Bastmeyer has performed everywhere from The Melkweg in Amsterdam to The Beaches Jazz Festival in Toronto. You may have seen him playing solo delta blues with tasty slide guitar. Maybe you caught him on tour with Juno winners Julian Fauth and James Thomson laying down that classic blues sound. Perhaps you saw him on tour with the Tim Bastmeyer Project laying down virtuoso guitar work. When not on tour Tim can be found at his recording studio in Uxbridge, Ontario.

On his fourth Red House Records album, “Easy Gone”, Bonneville delivers 10 reasons why patience pays off. In each, his guitarwork shimmers like stars emerging at dusk. His voice carries the rich, natural timbre of time, though underneath that pearl-like smoothness, one hears its gritty core. His harmonica rhythms add even more texture to his sound.
A 130-year-old former Baptist Church has been transformed into a listening place where 'Song is King'. Midnight Rambles originally grew out of jam sessions which erupted spontaneously after private showings (public showings were banned at the time) of early, Black-produced Hollywood films. Levon Helm (Drummer from The Band) adopted the name for his now legendary musical gatherings at his home studio near Woodstock, NY. Inspired by the idea of great, live, original music presented in an intimate setting (having attended many Midnight Rambles), singer/songwriter Dean Batstone brings this spirit to Eastern Ontario's newest live music venue, Batstone's Northern Ramble.

Cooder's solo work draws upon many genres. Few musical artists of the past half century have introduced us to so many great songs; from so many rich musical traditions as has Ry Cooder. Whether they are choice nuggets from the early American blues catalogue, or gems from the birthing years of Rock & Roll or Rhythm & Blues; or Tex-Mex classics, African Blues or pre-Castro Cuban Music (Buena Vista Social Club), Ry Cooder has provided us with the most heartfelt and virtuosic of performances.
While many got to see Ry Cooder perform in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, it has been a rare occurrence to see him since. His 1981 shows at U of T’s Convocation Hall were voted “the best concerts of the year” by all three Toronto newspapers, the Star, the Globe & Mail and the Toronto Sun. This is the only time all three papers would agree on their choice.
Cooder performed at Centrepointe Theatres in 2016 with Ricky Skaggs and Sharon White, with two sold-out shows but this will be the first time he brings us an evening of essential Ry Cooder music to Ottawa. On June 27th, Ry Cooder and his Band play Centrepointe Theatres to celebrate much of his greatest musical work plus songs from his much-anticipated new recording “The Prodigal Son”, to be released in early May of this year.
