Event description
Tri-Continental is a collaborative evolution blending the talents of three accomplished guitar players, singers and song writers.

About this Event

This trio first came together around 2000 when a jam showed the three seasoned guitarists Bill Bourne, Lester Quitzau and Madagascar Slim they had something special together. The sound of the collaboration was so different, and so popular it now has a category of its own: "universal blues". The ties between blues and roots and African rhythms were central to the original recipe, but over time other hints came into the mix. There are no musical boundaries in this one-of-a-kind blues/folk/world music mélange.

Tri-Continental won a Juno for its first CD in 2000 and has made several successful European tours. One German newspaper put it this way: "Bill Bourne is a grand improviser, Lester Quitzau kidnaps the blues to take it to new dimensions. And Madagascar Slim is considered the inventor and promoter of a new sound: the Madagascar blues.”

Bill Bourne

vocals, acoustic guitars, fiddle

A mainstay on the international roots scene, Bill is the recipient of multiple Juno awards, and has received international acclaim for his recordings and live performances.

Lester Quitzau

vocals, slide guitars, acoustic and electric guitars, kalimba

Lester plays soulful folk, blues and roots music. With an understated mastery and grace, the Juno winning musician explores the space between the notes as much as the notes themselves.

Madagascar Slim

vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, valiha

Madagascar is a Juno award recipient, and a truly bi-cultural artist. An expert in the popular "Salegy" dance style featuring intricate finger-picking patterns, his life was changed forever when he found the music of Jimi Hendrix. He has been infected with the blues virus ever since.
