COLIN JAMES – UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
Performance: Wednesday, January 17
Presented by Music by the Bay Live
From the prairies of Saskatchewan to the stages of the world, sharing his talent with some of the greatest and most influential musicians of all time, Colin James has quietly and steadily established himself as one of Canada's greatest musicians.
For his 18th album, Blue Highways, Colin pays tribute to some of his long-time blues idols including Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Freddie King, Jr. Wells & Buddy Guy, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and William Bell to name a few. In the spring of 2015 after wrapping up his Hearts on Fire Tour, Colin was loving playing with his band and very happy with the sound they had created on stage. What better time to make a record! Especially the record Colin had been itching to make for years – a collection of some of his favourite blues tracks. In less than a week Colin was recording in The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver and in just two days, Blue Highways was born.
January 17th will be an amazing night of music with a Canadian legend and Chris Caddell, one of Canada’s treasured up and coming singer-songwriters who are both considered two of Canada’s finest guitarists.
Be part of the experience with Colin James - Up Close and Personal in Port Perry on January 17th!
