Event description

Description

Tickets include Dinner and Show.
Dinner starts at 5:00 PM. Show at 6:00 PM
This is a public event and all ages are most welcome!

We are excited that Harpdog Brown, Canada's hottest Classic Blues Band, has generously donated his services to perform for the evening and his bandmates have joined in. Harpdog Brown & the Travelin' Blues Show is an International Touring act so this is really an incredible opportunity to see some world-class live blues right here on Whidbey and support the Hahn family at the same time!

Jess and JP, the kind owners of the Roaming Radish, have generously donated their facility so that we can host this event. I can't think of a better location.

Here is a message from Prudence's Aunt Dakota.
"My family and I are hosting this benefit to help my niece Prudence. It has been a tough past few months. She has spent the last few weeks at Children's Hospital, most of that time in the ICU. Our family was given the heartbreaking news that she has been diagnosed with a rare degenerative mitochondrial disease and the outlook is not good. She is home now, but the cost of being able to give her the best possible care and keep her comfortable is adding up. We need to raise funds to help her get to Seattle for all of her appointments, including gas and ferry fees. We also want to make sure that they can get the best home care possible including supplies needed and equipment that isn’t covered by insurance. All of these things are adding up extremely fast. These funds will help give Chris, Hannah, Oden & Elijah the ability to spend quality time with Prudence at home and give them the flexibility to be more directly involved with her care. Any donation big or small is greatly appreciated! Please keep Prudence, Chris, Hannah, Oden & Elijah in your thoughts and prayers during this time. Thank you!"

And if you're not familiar with Harpdog, here's a little info to whet your appetite:

HE'S BEEN CALLED A BLUES EVANGELIST

He's been called a blues evangelist and that is a very fitting moniker. "I speak the blues like it's the truth, and it is" he was recently quoted. "I do feel like I'm a servant of the people. And I do heal people if they pay attention to the good messages in the songs I choose." He delivers those messages in the traditional sound of early electric blues. Think of the old Chess Records and Sun Records of the late 40's and early 50's. Harpdog says "Blues has a healing power. It's a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives. We help people forget about their issues of the moment and then they realize that we all have our issues, and that's ok."

Vancouver-based Harpdog Brown was born in Edmonton in 1962, an adopted child who has felt somewhat detached his whole life - "a lifelong battle of not feeling like I belonged. I think I was born for the circus, you know, born to travel. The blues tapped me on the shoulder years ago and said 'this is where you belong, son'. So the blues became my circus and there's no better way to travel than with a classic blues band!"

They love the traditional early electric blues sound and they perform that style with authenticity. Some call it a Chicago Blues sound. Harpdog calls it Classic Blues. Think late 40's and early 50's vintage electric blues. They perform mostly originals yet they often include great songs of the masters from that era. Think Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Jimmy Reed and of course, Muddy Waters. Audiences say that they love hearing that lo-fi vinyl sound live on stage. They do it all while using vintage gear as well.

Harpdog Brown is a gifted vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player. Guitarist Jordie Edmonds plays a lowdown understated style yet has plenty of flash when needed. Doghouse bass player Pat Darcus drives the engine with his percussive style. The Travelin' Blues Show sometimes includes other guest musicians that befit the band and situation such as sought-after drummer Andy Graffiti. Regardless of the incarnation you see, this show is unique, refreshing and leaves audiences feeling good and wanting more.

He is a three-time Maple Blues Award Winner (2014/2015/2016), Fraser Valley Music Award Winner, three-time Western Canadian Music Awards Nominee, Juno Nominee and the only Canadian to win the coveted Muddy Award. Most recently he was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in hi s hometown of Edmonton, Alberta.

In case you haven’t heard, he was nominated for 3 Maple Blues Awards (Harmonica Player, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year) for his latest release Travelin’ With The Blues. The album features a duet with Charlie Musselwhite and was produced by the Beale Street Blues Bopper himself, Little Victor with guest appearances from Kid Andersen, Big Jon Atkinson and more.

His recent album release Travelin' With The Blues has remained steady in the top of roots and blues charts and follows his Top 20 charting 2014 release What It Is (Roots Music Report International Blues Albums).
