7:30 pm, Wednesday, October 29th,

Brent Parkin’s music is a mix of Chicago style blues, swing, jump, and roots music with some country and rock thrown in for good measure. This guitarist, singer songwriter is a veteran of the very vibrant Winnipeg music scene and has toured this country extensively appearing at some of Canada’s legendary blues clubs such as the Yale Hotel in Vancouver, Blues on Whyte in Edmonton, The King Eddy in Calgary and the Silver Dollar in Toronto.

Parkin has been a member of back-up bands for greats like Bo Diddley, Gate Mouth Brown, Otis Rush and others. He has also opened for blues legends James Cotton, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, and BB King and roots icon John Prine.

Honours include a 1993 Juno Award, a Western Canada Music Award nomination and several Maple Blues Award nominations including three times for the Blues with a Feeling Award (Lifetime Achievement).

Another great sold-out show! Thanks to Brent Parkin for providing those fortunate enough to have attended with an evening of Chicago style blues, swing and a little folk roots. Everyone was in awe of Brent’s guitar stylings, as his reputation for one of Canada’s premier blues musicians is well deserved. We were treated to stories, corny jokes and selections by everyone from Fats Waller to Taj Mahal to Tampa Red to Robert Johnson to John Prine to Johnny Cash, and of course some Brent Parkin originals, all presented in Brent’s inimitable style.
