There are 5 Sundays in January, which means the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave), gets to bring in another incredible Blues band this month, which we are really excited to do so! Canadian Blues fans, on Sunday January 29th, the Linsmore is bringing in Juno Award winner Paul Reddick & Kyle Ferguson with Special guests! It’s not every day you get to bring a blues legend and Juno Award winner onto your stage, so this is an absolute honour to have such a highly respected Canadian Blues legend on our stage! Paul Reddick & Kyle Ferguson will be performing the following evening at The 26th Annual Maple Blues Awards Ceremony the night after the show at the Linsmore, so this is a great chance to see this band perform up front in an intimate setting! The show starts at 7pm, there’s no cover!
Singer, songwriter and harmonica player Paul Reddick has been performing his critically acclaimed original songs on stages across Canada, the USA and Europe for over 30 years.
He has recorded and written with Colin Linden, Tom Wilson (Lee Harvey Osmond) and MonkeyJunk among others, and recorded 10 albums of his own. His most recent recording, Ride the One (on Stony Plain Records), received the 2016 Juno Award for Best Blues Album.
Often referred to as the Poet Laureate of the Blues, he has been exploring and pushing the boundaries of the blues art form his entire career. His dedication, “Blues is a beautiful landscape”, led him to create the annual Cobalt Prize for Contemporary Blues Composition in 2014 which encourages the growth and vitality of blues music.
Renowned for his intense and hypnotic performances, Paul Reddick has developed a loyal following amongst both his fans and musical peers and continues to be one of the most compelling performers on the Canadian music scene.
