Can you believe it’s already Harvest Jazz & Blues?
Get in on the fun and take in a show at the Playhouse! Don’t miss everything Downtown Fredericton has to offer during Harvest.
Here’s what we have going on this week:
Charlie Musselwhite (Sept. 10)
Opening Act: Morgan Davis
Charlie Musselwhite is living proof that great music only gets better with age. This man cut his (musical) teeth alongside Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Little Walter, John Lee Hooker, (Charlie’s Best Man at his wedding to Henrietta) and everyone on the south side of Chicago in the early 1960’s.
Charlie Musselwhite may be the only musician to get a huge ovation just for opening his briefcase. Fans know that’s where he keeps his harmonicas and they’re about to hear one of the true masters work his magic on the humble instrument.
Harry Manx & Steve Marriner (Sept. 13)
“Mysticssippi” blues man Harry Manx has been called an “essential link” between the music of East and West, creating musical short stories that wed the tradition of the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas. He has created a unique sound that is hard to forget and deliciously addictive to listen to.
Steve Marriner‘s incorporation of various styles of blues, roots and soul come together to form an original sound that is both deep and genuine. While he currently dedicates most of his time to fronting the acclaimed roots sensation “MonkeyJunk”, Steve can often be found performing intimate solo shows and joining other artists as a dynamic sideman.
Kathleen Edwards (Sept. 14)
Opening Act: Josh Bravener
Ottawa singer-songwriter Kathleen Edwards is well known for penning songs that act as perfect travel companions to their own haunted landscapes. Her highly decorated work frequently celebrates the many pleasures of survival and reinvention, all with a seductively quiet strength.
A musical raconteur, lyrical poet, and gifted performer, the music of Kathleen Edwards is beautifully honed artistry.
