Colin James Blues Trio
Approximate running time: 2 hours
Vernon B.C. V1T 5T6
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.
A little over a year ago, the 6 time Juno Award Winner released his 18th album entitled, "Blue Highways". On this award winning cd, Colin James pays tribute to some of his long time blues idols including Howlin' Wolf, Buddy Guy, Robert Johnson, Freddie King Jr., Peter Green, Jimmy Reed, and William Bell just to name a few. This collection of some of James' favourite blues tracks was named the Best Independent Blues Rock CD at the 2017 Independent Blues Awards in August.
In the Spring of 2018, James will take the Colin James Blues Trio on the road for a number of B.C. and Alberta dates. The tour will make a stop in Vernon on Friday March 23rd at the Vernon performing Arts Centre. Tickets for this all new show will go on sale Friday November 24th. Tickets for this show will inevitably sell very quickly so you are advised to get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
The Colin James Blues Trio LIVE in concert on Friday March 23rd at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre is a presentation of the Kootenay Concert Connection.
