Description

Presenting an evening of slide guitar music performed in different styles on different instruments by four different artists all under the roof of a renovated vintage barn!

Doors open at 7 pm and music starts at 8 pm. We provide coffee, tea and water but you are welcome to bring your own drink of choice. Chairs are provided but bring a cushion for maximum comfort. Our famous Toast Station will be open with free artisan breads and spreads. Lots of parking. Kid friendly.

Here's the lineup...

BRENT PARKIN

Brent's music is a mix of Chicago style blues, swing, roots music with some country and roots rock and roll thrown in for good measure. In the last 43 years he co-founded several blues bands including the popular band Houndog in 1976 and been part of backup bands for such legends as Bo Diddley, Gatemouth Brown, Otis Rush, Billy Boy Arnold, Johnnie Johnson, Jimmy T99 Nelson and many more. Brent opened shows for such greats as James Cotton, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy and John Prine just to name a few and a career highlight is sharing the tour bus and stage with BB King and his band and opening for them on a Western Canadian tour in 1983. A few honours have come Brent's way over the years including a 1993 Juno Award for his performance on Saturday Night Blues CBC Compilation, multiple Maple Blues Awards nominations, 2013 & 2014 Maple Blues Awards nominations for the Blues With A Feeling Lifetime Achievement Award and a 2011 Western Canada Music Award Nomination in the Blues Category for Brent Parkin "Vintage Rhythm".

KEN CAMPBELL

Ken Campbell began performing primarily as a guitarist but soon became known for his pedal steel playing. He’s accomplished at mandolin, dobro and bass and along with his wife performs with Portage la Prairie's "Brennan's Bounty" formed by former Double Eagle guitarist Charlie Brennan. Campbell performed, toured, and recorded with many bands and artists over the years most notably Heather Bishop, Connie Kaldor, Keith and Renee, and Johnny Dietrich of Portage la Prairie. He now tours regularly with multi-award winning roots artist Ridley Bent whose demo recordings and 2013 CD “Skeleton Crew” were recorded and produced by Campbell at his Glendoro studio. A new CD titled “Killer Tumbleweeds” is being released this April.

JAMIE STEINHOFF

Jamie Steinhoff is a bluesman guilty of preserving authenticity. A masterful talent on slide/dobro and fingerstyle/acoustic he presents pre-war and mid-century Delta and Piedmont blues purely and unaltered. Steinhoff shared his clever originals on festival workshop stages with Bill Bourne, Tim Williams, Fred Eaglesmith, Matt Anderson, and Amos Garrett to name a few. Tour highlights include opening for Ramblin' Jack Elliot and sharing a concert bill with John Sebastian in a private Carribean performance. He performs and records with duo partner Tracy K releasing a five-star critiqued album "Canned Heat" in 2011. He also appears on Tracy K’s albums "Old, New, Borrowed and Blues" 2007 and "What’s the Rush?" 2016. The duo are quarter finalists at the 2014 International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee and most recently completed a Home Routes Tour in Manitoba.

DARRELL "SLIDE BOY" SANDMOEN

Slide Boy Sandmoen is the official host of the Slide Shows and brings his unique "down to earth country blues with a twist" style of slide guitar on electric, acoustic and dobro to the stage. For over the last 45 years Sandmoen developed his deep addiction to slide guitar and loves old style blues of the originators such as Robert Johnson and Hound Dog Taylor and current blues innovators like Ry Cooder, David Lindley and David Wilcox.

HOUSE BAND - The Slide Backers featuring Joanna Miller on drums and Vaughan Poyser on bass.
