Au cœur de la Montérégie, dans une petite municipalité accueillante, la première édition de ce festival de Blues bat son plein. L'équipe organisatrice, sous la responsabilité de Mélanie Bouclin, est bien rodée et tout se passe... à l'église!
Angel Forrest will be performing this Friday, March 11th, at the Corona Theater in Montreal as part of her CD launch for Angel’s 11 which will be released that same day. Multiple guests that appear on the CD will be present so come one, come all, as this promises to be a great show, on a day that also just happens to be Angel's birthday. For those of you not able to attend the show, it will be streamed live online at the following link:
May 2011. Steve Hill's guitar "pusher" offered to sell him a guitar: a Gibson ES225. He wanted it but he didn't have the money for it, so they worked out a trade. A solo show in Drummondville in exchange for the guitar. It was three weeks before the release of his sixth album, Whiplash Love, but he felt he had bottomed out professionally, because though he knew it was a good album, the record label wasn't getting behind it. The album wasn't going to go anywhere. There were no gigs booked.
