FATHEAD blows out the lights at BOTR @ The Cove

2X Juno Award and multiple Maple Blues Award winners FATHEAD came up from Toronto/Havelock/London to play BLUES ON THE RIDEAU at THE COVE INN, Westport this past weekend and delivered two great shows. It’s their 20th Anniversary this year and they showed why they are one of the best loved and most decorated bands in the country. Their wonderful blend of blues/funk/soul and R&B really is a unique, special recipe. May they continue for another 20 years+.
