What better place to host the Montreal debut of Canada's Best Classic Blues Band? Harpdog Brown loves the traditional early electric blues of the late 40's and early 50's. They have a vintage sound and they perform that style with authenticity. Some call it a Chicago Blues. Harpdog calls it Classic Blues. They perform mostly originals yet they often include great songs of the masters from that era. Think Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Jimmy Reed and of course, Muddy Waters. Audiences say that they love hearing that lo-fi vinyl sound live on stage. He's been called a Blues Evangelist. And that's a very fitting moniker. "I speak the blues like it's the truth, and it is" he was recently quoted. "I do feel like I'm a servant of the people. And we do heal people if they pay attention to the good messages in the songs we choose." says Brown. "Blues has a healing power. It's a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives. We help people forget about their issues of the moment and then they realize that we all have our issues, and that's ok.” Bootlegger L'Authentique presents Harpdog Brown & the Travelin' Blues Show... Harpdog Brown, Vocals and Harmonica Jordie Edmonds, Guitar and Montreal's own rhythm section featuring Stephan Barry on Bass and John McColgan on drums.
