TO ATTENTIVE AUDIENCES
Duncan Showroom 250-748-7246 (RAIN)
With a raspy, warm voice and songwriting inspired by East Coast folklore and history, Mike McKenna Jr is a singer-songwriter from Nova Scotia, Canada who has captured the attention listeners in his native Maritimes, his current home in Montreal's Mile End and around the North American folk music community. With a distinct and dynamic vocal style falling somewhere between James Taylor and Ray Lamontagne, his tales of tragic sea voyages and lost lovers offer a contemporary nod to the nautical-themed songs of his home province, and a revival of a traditional genre made popular by Canadian folk legends such as Stan Rogers and Gordon Lightfoot.

Doc MacLean and Albert Frost-the National Steel CanAfrica Blues Tour
It’s an electric-acoustic blues duo mixing our contemporary and traditional delta and west African roots.
Contemporary blues roots artists. One guy played with Son House, the other with Ali Farka Toure. Two special stories. Two unique, yet complimentary musicians, together for one special tour. Possibly the most significant and interesting National Steel Blues adventure yet. And the best version of Sugarman you’ve ever heard.
