Description

Canada’s Classic Bluesman, Harpdog Brown is on the road again and this time he's bringing the new sounds of The Uptown Blues Band to The Krossing. Harpdog Brown has grown a reputation as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues. These days, he’s been touring more and more as Harpdog Brown & the Uptown Blues Band - a vintage New Orleans Blues sound featuring piano, drums, sax, and clarinet. Still a vintage vibe, just a different vintage and more in the realm of Louis Jordan, Satchmo, Sonny Boy Williamson, Wynonie Harris, and Duke Ellington. Harpdog Brown is a gifted vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player. Piano man Dave Webb has been working with Harpdog over many years and they share an intuition that only comes with many hours and miles shared on and off stage. Billy Joe Abbott is the newest and youngest addition to the band, he learned his craft first-hand from some of the greatest players in New Orleans. Rounding out the band is Dwayne Hrynkiw on drums. Harpdog has won three consecutive Maple Blues Awards for Harmonica Player of the Year (2014/2015/2016), the Fraser Valley Music Award, has three consecutive Western Canadian Music Awards Nominations, a Juno Nomination and is the only Canadian to win the coveted Muddy Award. In 2016, 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. Travelin' With The Blues released in 2016 is still sitting in the top roots and blues charts and follows his Top 20 charting 2014 release What It Is (Roots Music Report International Blues Albums). Get off the couch and some see some seriously vintage blues that’s lots of fun!“This band could play anywhere in the world, in any venue, large or small, and blues fans of all stripes would love this show." - Holger Petersen, SiriusXM, CKUA and CBC broadcaster and President of Stony Plain Records
Show at 7:30 pm
