Arts Commons presents PCL Blues
Friday, October 27th, 2017
Born and raised Alberta bluesman Harpdog Brown has rapidly stacked up critical acclaim, winning Harmonica Player of the Year at the Maple Blues Awards two years in a row, as well as the coveted Muddy Award for Best North West Blues Release - the only Canadian to this day to do so. Those acclaims along with receiving the Lifetime Award from the Hamilton Blues Society have cemented his reputation in his home country and abroad. Though if you ask Harpdog, he’d say, "After more than 30 years of blood, sweat and tears, it feels like I'm just getting started. I'm only 54 - that's young in the blues world!" Harpdog Brown will be joined by hill country bluesman Sugar Brown, aka Dr. Ken Kawashima, PhD. A Canadian bluesman of Japanese/Korean descent known for his sweet, dark, inconsolable blues, Sugar Brown gained his nickname from his mentor Taildragger who once said “You ain’t black…..and you sure ain’t white….You’re Sugar Brown.”
