With a dazzling line up of Les Pauls, Teles and Stratocasters, and people who really know their way around them, the 9th Annual Blues Caravan is shredding the stage! The latest edition of the yearly Ruf Records collaborative tour is bringing raw, powerful blues to ArtSpring.
This year’s edition features a selection of guitar player/vocalists, with blues prodigy Jimmy Bowskill (Canada), the music of Nashville’s Bart Walker, and the First Lady of British blues, Joanne Shaw Taylor. The group is coming to western Canada as part of an extensive tour which started with shows across eastern Europe and Scandanavia in April, and will then wind down to where the heart of the blues started pumping, in the midwestern and south US, along Highway 61 and beyond. Each of these top notch artists has a CV worthy of raised eyebrows, and they will showcase their talents at ArtSpring!
