BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE INN

2018/19 SEASON – our 14th year!

MONTHLY DINNER & SHOW FUNDRAISERS IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL CHARITIES FEATURING SOME OF CANADA’S BEST BLUES BANDS

From Montreal
DAWN TYLER WATSON & THE BEN RACINE BAND

Blues Music Magazine in the U.S. has called Dawn Tyler Watson “one of Canada’s true Blues treasures”. Born in England and raised in Ontario she moved to Montreal decades ago where she earned a BFA in Jazz Studies & Theatre at Concordia. Her powerful, soulful voice is also perfect for singing the Blues – which she loves as much as Jazz – and she’s won 3 Canadian Maple Blues Awards and 9 Quebec Lys Blues Awards over the years to prove it! Last year she teamed up with one of the hottest Soul/Blues/R&B groups in Quebec – the Ben Racine Band – and travelled to the famed International Blues Challenge in Memphis. They won first place beating out over 260 bands from around the world and Ben won Guitarist Of The Year – an amazing double honour. Dawn’s latest album “Jawbreaker” was nominated for the Maple Blues Award for Recording Of The Year in 2017 and she has another record coming out shorty backed once again by the Ben Racine Band. Can’t wait! Although Ben has played BOTR before this is Dawn’s first visit and we are honoured to finally have her here. What a fabulous double bill!

Nolan Hubbard at the Cove Inn!

 

Nolan Hubbard boldly emerges as vocalist, guitarist and composer of evocative acoustic-pop masterpieces with the forthcoming release of his debut album and his moving and memorable lead-off single Today.

The album was recorded in Nashville alongside top session players, and was produced by Canadian industry veteran Douglas Romanow. The time spent in Music City USA proved to be edifying and encouraging for Hubbard, as he felt both in awe of the surroundings but also emboldened by the experience – awed by the significance of being one of the mecca’s of the music business, but also emboldened because he came to realize that he had what it took as a songwriter and player to hang with some of the world’s best.

Born and raised in the small eastern Ontario community of Gananoque, just east of Kingston, Hubbard grew up in a home immersed in music, particularly what might be called the modern Great Canadian Songbook.

Hubbard got his first guitar at age 11, taking to the instrument with a dedication and obvious ability and quickly becoming a self-taught prodigy. By 17, his tastes had begun to change as he became more artistically confident and adventurous, expanding his repertoire into a more acoustic style. At the same time, he started to experiment with singing along to his playing, revealing a voice that was surprisingly soulful, impactful and one that made people listen intently. He knew immediately he wanted to be able to move people with just a guitar, his voice and his songs.

The song Sandbanks is an affectionate ode to a popular beach area in Prince Edward County in Ontario, but Hubbard said it could apply to any place that evokes warm, wonderful affectionate memories.

This album is a game changer for Hubbard, as he’s stepped out with a confident and strong debut – a collection of songs that are accessible, compelling and which wind their way into people’s souls. It’s a record that will undoubtedly make music lovers, cultural tastemakers and the music industry feel good about the future of popular music in Canada.
