The ever-popular Blues on the Rideau series returns to The Cove Inn on Friday June 2nd, 2023 with a performance by Blackburn Brothers.
Blackburn Brothers consists of brothers Brooke on guitar & vocals, Duane on keyboards & lead vocals, Cory on drums and friends Andrew Stewart on bass and Neil Braithwaite on sax. (4th brother Robert also collaborates on writing their songs). They come by their unique blend of Blues, Soul, Funk and R&B honestly. Their ancestors came to Canada via the Underground Railroad in the 1800’s bringing their rich heritage of African American music with them. And their father – Bobby Dean Blackburn – was a mainstay keyboardist on the vibrant Toronto R&B scene for decades. Blackburn received the Maple Blues Award for Best New Band when they hit the scene in 2010 and they’ve since been nominated for a Juno and multiple Maple Blues Awards. They have two great albums out and good news – another one on the way (on Electro-Fi) to be released in the Spring of 2023 – just in time for their appearance here. It’s their second visit to BOTR at The Cove and if this one is anything like the last it will be a night to remember!
“A rich, beefy stew of blues slammed into elements of R&B and funk… lifts a proud family name to the next level. Their live show is a born-again testament to the deep-rooted talents of this genetic powerhouse”. Eric Thom, Exclaim.ca
