East Coast Blues Summit
The East Coast Blues Summit brings together an incredible group of Maritime artists on one stage performing some of the music that inspired them as well as their own original material.
It's not well known across Canada, but the east coast has been a hotbed of blues music for more than fifty years. From country blues, swing, urban, R&B and jump, many styles and influences have contributed to what is now an east coast sound and approach.
CBC in the Maritimes decided the time was right to showcase this wealth of blues and to produce a musical special for radio, television and online.
Juno Award Winning artist Garrett Mason, Matt Andersen, Morgan Davis, Linda Carvery, Theresa Malenfant and Carson Downey...a slate of amzing artists with deep blues roots and emotional delivery all perform.
The house band is a special group of players, all recording artists in their own right. Joe Murphy,harp and guitar; Kim Dunn, keys; Bill Stevenson, piano; Jamie Gatti, bass and Geoff Arsenault, drums.
You can buy the big sound of the Blues Summit on iTunes.
Either way, don't miss this entertaining hour long music special.
