An evening of storytelling and song with Joel Fafard from British Columbia
Award-winning guitarist Joel Fafard performs Southern roots and blues classics with the soul of a purist and the showmanship of a seasoned entertainer.
He sings with the sexy, sandpapered-sounding vocal style of the new-generation bluesman. He tells his between-song stories with the confidence of a late show host delivering his monologue. And when he lets rip a solo on his resonator guitar, it’s easy to hear how he once earned both a Juno nomination and a Western Canadian Music Award for his skills on the axe.
With his latest album Fowl Mood along with his live show, Fafard is using his uncommon skill as an entertainer to embark on a new musical mission: breathing new life into grand old numbers like “Grinnin in yer face” and “Sow good Seeds” while introducing new compositions like “Liqoured and Licked” and “that ain’t nothing” to the roots and blues genre.
Fafard’s stop in Fredricton finds him in the middle of a tour that starts in New Zealand, book ends Canada’s West and East Coast before taking him through the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany.
