Burnaby Blues Festival


Blues Workshops

These workshops will be hosted by Chicago/Vancouver blues veteran and bass player Jack Lavin, who was a member of the Powder Blues as well as the host at the Yale Hotel Blues Jam for many years. Jack will be joined by Al Foreman on piano, Tim Hearsey on guitar, John Nolan on drums and Jerry Cook and Steve Hilliam on horns.

Learn and hear about three of the genres of blues music that continue to influence all musicians to this day: Chicago Blues, Memphis Blues, New Orleans Blues and new for 2019, “Let’s Give the Horns Some!”
