Montreal's Steve Hill Tops Tally With Four Wins
January 19, 2015 (Toronto) - Blue Monday, thought to be the most depressing day of the year, was anything but last night Toronto’s Koerner Hall, as internationally renowned Canadian Blues Artists from coast-to-coast were honoured by their peers at the 18th Annual Maple Blues Awards gala.
The Montreal Blues Society co-hosted a private event on Saturday, January 17th along with the Ottawa Blues Society, during the course of Blues Summit 7 in Toronto. The showcase was a chance for Quebec and Ottawa artists to strut their stuff in front of an audience comprised of festival buyers, media, agents, and record label execs.

Montreal Blues Society – Guy Belanger, Blues Turn
Guy Bélanger has covered the spectrum of musical directions over his 40 year career. He has honed his craft with the likes of Bob Walsh, Muddy Waters, Koko Taylor, and James Cotton. But he has contributed musically in plenty of non-blues projects too.
Not since 1996’s Secondhand Blues has Angel Forrest offered such a blues/soul inspired recording than her 2013 studio release Mother Tongue Blues. With that, the multiple award winning vocalist embarked on a tour that focused on a trio format.
