Lil' Jimmy Reed Band - On January 23, 2017, at the 20th annual Maple Blues Awards, Angel Forrest achieved something quite remarkable, unprecedented even, when she was named the Female Vocalist of the Year for the fourth consecutive time. Trophies for Recording/Producer of the Year for her CD, Angel's 11 (2016) and Songwriter of the Year (with husband, guitarist and bandleader, Denis Coulombe) completed the Montreal native's hat trick. Angel has been nominated for two 2017 Maple Blues Awards, we will know in January if she is adding more to her collection.

With a career now into its third decade, Forrest is well known in La Belle Province for her trademark fiery red hair and grainy, smoky voice. Bonnie Raitt and Melissa Etheridge come to mind. She's naturally inclined to prowl the stage barefoot too. "It keeps me more grounded with the vibe of the whole scene," explains Forrest. "And, I like to dance a lot."

Jack Semple - Jack Semple is one of those rare guitar players who leaves a crowd speechless, one of those players who leaves a crowd in total astonishment, in absolute awe of what they have just experienced. Listening to and watching Jack play fills one with a sense of having witnessed an event in time, one not soon to be forgotten. Jack Semple is an absolute virtuoso of his art form, playing with unparalleled feeling and total technical control.

Jack Semple writes and performs "Modern Blues" without forgetting where he came from. He is an epic guitarist and a soulful singer. His music is like Stevie Ray Vaughn meets James Brown meets Robben Ford. He is a Juno Award winner and Western Canadian Music Award winner.
