Salmon Arm Blues and Roots festival


Blues Workshop Band

I was honoured to be invited to the 2008 Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival this summer headlined by The Neville Brothers. Also appearing was my cousin, Linda Tillery and The Cultural Heritage Choir.  We performed on Aug.16th and 17th.  Saturday the 16th, I,along with David Wilcox and several other Canadian musicians conducted a mid morning workshop which was phenomenal.
 
On Sunday, August 17th, I was once again honoured to have the opportunity to meet two of the true legends of the blues, 93 year old Honey Boy Edwards and 68 year old, Elmore James Jr.  What a treat!
 
This festival is one of the best organized events I've ever experienced. 
If you have a chance to catch this yearly event in Salmon Arm, British Columbia, I highly recommend you do.  You'll be glad you did.
