GuyDavisbyRichardDowdy2010homeGuy Davis
April 15, Wednesday

Tickets $30

We are honoured Guy Davis is coming back to the Dream stage, one of the Best…..one of the Class Acts.

His ‘all’ is the Blues. The routes, and roots, of his blues are as diverse as the music form itself. It can be soulful, moaning out a people’s cry, or playful and bouncy as a hay-ride.

Guy can tell you stories of his great-grandparents and his grandparents, they’re days as track linemen, and of their interactions with the infamous KKK. He can also tell you that as a child raised in middle-class New York suburbs, the only cotton he’s picked is his underwear up off the floor.

He's a musician, composer, actor, director, and writer. But most importantly, Guy Davis is a bluesman. The blues permeates every corner of Davis' creativity.

Throughout his career, he has dedicated himself to reviving the traditions of acoustic blues and bringing them to as many ears as possible through the material of the great blues masters, African American stories, and his own original songs, stories and performance pieces.

AngelForrestAngel Forrest
May 14, Thursday

Tickets $28

Performing with two great guitar players: Denis Coulombe & Paul Deslauriers.

With a career span of over 26 years and eight records, Canada female vocalist of the year (maple blues award), Angel Forrest sure knows how to rock the house with last spring’s latest release, "LIVE" LOVE at the Palace.

Forrest’s work gained positive attention from critics as well as fans. If her spot on tribute to Janis Joplin was a no-brainer amongst festival attendees and club’s patrons, her unique signature on blues takes us a step beyond.

A familiar face on the Canadian blues circuit; she was a remarkable fit at last year’s Toronto Blues Society’s Women Blues Review presented at Massey Hall. Other accomplishments include strong appearances at Montreal’s internationally renowned jazz festival as well as Tremblant’s Blues ten day extravaganza when she opened this year for Jarvis Church - The Soul Station.
