For The Love Of The Blues!

Me with Blues singer/musician/harmonica player extraordinaire, David Rotundo!


I’ve been a lover of live Blues music since I was in college in the early ’80’s and have seen many amazing Blues artists play in Kingston, Belleville, Toronto, Vancouver and Austin. I’ve highlighted some of my very favourites in bold on the list below.
