He no longer had a guitar and he hadn't played much in twenty years, but when I asked him if he could still sing and play he straightened and said, "I'm better now than I ever was" - Sam Charters tracks down Furry Lewis in 1959, from Walking a Blues Road

2005-2006 Carma Acoustic Blues Series lineup
« on: July 15, 2005, 12:57:40 PM »
Hi all:

Here's this seasons line up for the Carma Acoustic Blues Series here in Calgary, Canada. Lookin' good!


Carma Acoustic Blues Series

There's a history writ of dirt and sweat, a past that can't be contained on any page. Musicians both legendary and emerging take the stage to teach these stories at the 2005-2006 Carma Acoustic Blues Series. Join us as blues masters tell of a past not written in history books!

Cephas and Wiggins
Friday, October 28, 2005 - 8pm
Saturday, October 29, 2005 - 8pm
Cephas and Wiggins breathe new life into the longstanding tradition of the front porch blues-duo delivery, straight up and totally authentic.
  Joe Grass
Saturday, November 19, 2005 - 8pm
Currently a rising star on the cast of CBC Radio's Vinyl Cafe, Joe is rapidly becoming a critics favourite for his glassy, ethereal slide guitar and a guttural vocal power that belies his youthful presence.
 Morgan Davis
Friday, January 13, 2006 - 8pm
Morgan Davis projects a gritty blues persona, his footstompin', blues revival, swamp-boogie sound reverberating with feel and compassion.
Corky Siegel's Chamber Blues
Wednesday, February 1, 2006 - 8pm
Thursday, February 2, 2006 - 8pm
The perception may be that blues and classical music are worlds apart. Corky Siegel's blues harmonica and string-quartet with percussion combo have converted die-hards from both camps.

Jim Byrnes
Friday, March 31, 2006 - 8pm
An accomplished and critically acclaimed actor seen regularly in TV series such as Highlander and Wiseguy, Byrnes is as equally a soulful and intuitive bluesman.

Mary Flower
Friday, April 28, 2006 - 8pm
Mary Flower's performances, chock full of old-time blues and hokum, conjure up the sounds and feel of vaudeville, old jazz and ragtime blues.
