Hornby Island Blues Society presents Blues Odyssey 2019
“An incredible entertainment event…. like witnessing an entire Blues festival in one amazing show.”
The performing musicians in this year’s Blues Review are the genuine ambassadors of Canadian Blues and Roots music with collective award recognition at the Junos, Maple Blues Awards, CBC Blues Awards and wins at the international Blues Challenge in Memphis. Separately these top-draw musicians tour with their own bands and perform individually throughout the year, drawing both full venues and great reviews; collectively they are simply amazing. All are recording musicians and all are veterans of the Canadian music community. After working together for a week at the Hornby Island Blues Workshop where they instruct new musicians in the ways and means of Blues, and perform together nightly in blues fellowship, they are ready to they take the show to Vancouver Island for one magical night only in what is called the Odyssey Blues Review. If you have witnessed it before you know how special it is; if you have not seen it, you will remember it long after the encore and lights go down. Now in its 20th year, the Odyssey certainly invented the pitch “You do not want to miss this one”.
Line Up: Paul Pigat, Suzie Vinnick, Gray Kendall, David Vest, Cécile Doo-Kingué, Tim Williams, Brandon Isaak, Jack de Keyzer, Michael Jerome Browne, Diana Braithwaite, Chris Nordquist, Keith Bennett, Chris Whiteley, Rick Fines

Suzie Vinnick and Rick Fines
Rick and Suzie, together! It doesn't get better than this. Theirs is a chemistry that can't be found just anywhere. Come hear them together and leave feeling like your batteries are recharged and life looks pretty darned good!
Rick loves to play this concert in the town closest to his little cabin in the woods. (it's free) You can buy something from the BBQ and eat by the river.
It's only the second year of this little festival in the little hamlet of Gooderham. Rick will be on early. It's a beautiful park in a beautiful part of the work, on a Saturday afternoon in the summer. Be there. (it's free)
