On the program for Saturday May 7, 2011
On this weekends' edition of 'Atlantic Airwaves' - An East Coast Blues Summit part 2 featuring performances by Morgan Davis, Linda Carvery, Matt Andersen, Carson Downey, Theresa Malenfant and Garrett Mason
The east coast has been a hotbed of blues music for, at least, the past fifty years. Many styles and influences...country blues, swing, urban and jump, to name a few, 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. The East Coast Blues Summit brings together those influences, styles, and an incredible group of Maritime singers and musicians on one stage performing some of the music that inspired them as well as originals. Matt Andersen, Morgan Davis, Linda Carvery, Garrett Mason, Theresa Malenfant and Carson Downey are all award winning artists with deep blues roots and emotional delivery. The band is a special group of players, all being recording artists in their own right. From the very first notes of rehearsals right through to showtime there was an atmosphere of excitement and joy to be playing together.
