Description

Lions Bay House Concerts presents Harpdog Brown & The Uptown Blues Band

“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

Harpdog Brown, vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player, has grown a reputation as a real-deal purveyor of classic electric blues. Think of the old Chess Records and Sun Records of the late 40's and early 50’s. These days he’s been touring more and more as Harpdog Brown & the Uptown Blues Band - a vintage New Orleans Blues sound featuring alto sax, clarinet, keys and harmonica. Still a vintage vibe, just a different vintage! This music will move you! They perform mostly originals yet they often include great songs of the masters from that era. Think Louis Jordan, Satchmo, Sonny Boy Williamson, Wynonie Harris, even Duke Ellington.

Harpdog has won three consecutive Maple Blues Awards for Harmonica Player of the Year (2014/2015/2016), has had 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 "Travelin’ With The Blues" which is still sitting in the top roots and blues charts. Now Canada’s Classic Bluesman, Harpdog Brown, is bringing his brand new show right here to Lions Bay... and he's bringing piano-man Dave Webb, as well as Billy Joe Abbott on clarinet and alto sax right along with him!


Set in a stunning Lions Bay location this is going to be one seriously fun vintage blues October night! SO grab a friend or two, bring something to drink and a plate to share (potluck), and we'll see you there!
