Shift with Paul Castle

Cue the jazz and blues!

Posted by Elaine Bateman

We're celebrating 25 years of the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival by giving you and a guest a chance to take in all the great music and fun times the Fredericton event has to offer. We have two ultimate passes and three nights' accommodation. An ultimate pass gives you guaranteed access to all tents from Wednesday to Saturday , Sept. 16 to 19. There are other perks too -- no line-ups, a pre-party show and discounts to winter blues shows and harvest merchandise. Here's how to enter: write a bluesy song for us -- just a verse or two -- and make sure it includes the word "Shift" and the number "25". You can set it to music or call and give us an accapella version. The number is 1-855-744-3862. Or, if you're too shy to sing the blues, send us an email at shiftnb@cbc.ca and we'll add a little background music and share it on the show. You have until Thursday, Sept. 3 at noon to enter. After that, we'll hand the entries over to our judge, New Brunswick singer-songwriter, Brent Mason, to choose the winner. We'll make the announcement on Friday, Sept. 4 in lots of time to plan your trip to the 25th anniversary edition of the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival.
