Harpdog Brown & the Travelin’ Blues ShowHe’s been called a Blues Evangelist and that is a very fitting moniker. Harpdog says "Blues has a healing power. It's a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives. We help people forget about their issues and then they realize that we all have our issues, and that's OK."
He delivers his message in the traditional sound of early electric blues. Think of the old Chess Records and Sun Records of the late 40's and early 50's. They perform mostly originals yet they often include great songs of the masters from that era. Think Louis Jordan, Satchmo, Sonny Boy Williamson, Wynonie Harris, Duke Ellington etc.
Harpdog has won three consecutive Maple Blues Awards for Harmonica Player of the Year (2014/2015/2016), along with many other awards including a Juno nomination.
Charlie Musselwhite, who sat in for a duet on his latest release, Travelin’ with the Blues, says "Harpdog's got a smokin' band playin' and he's singing the real-deal old-school blues just like you want to hear. I love the killer guitar playing!”
