Music in the Landing – Joël Fafard: Livestream from Heritage Playhouse

Award-winning guitarist Joel Fafard performs Southern roots and blues classics with the soul of a purist and the showmanship of a seasoned entertainer.
He sings with the sexy, sandpapered-sounding vocal style of the new-generation bluesman delivered with the confidence of a late show host delivering his monologue. And when he lets rip a solo on his resonator guitar, it’s easy to hear how he once earned both a Juno nomination and a Western Canadian Music Award for his skills on the axe.

Carlos del Junco in Concert


Get ready to trash all you thought about the harmonica, Carlos del Junco and The Blues Mongrels deliver a no holds barred display of melodic fun and virtuosity. 
Eight time Maple Blues winner, Carlos del Junco and his Blues Mongrels return to the Heritage Playhouse after the success of last year’s show.. As one magazine reviewer said: “…if you think what he can do in the studio is jaw dropping, you have to see him live to get the gist of his uncanny ability.” (Jeffrey Morgan, Creem Magazine). A case in point, he opened for Ray Charles in 2003 at the Sony Centre and sold out of his 150 CDs in the 20 minute break before Ray came on! Presented by Sunshine Coast Jazz & Entertainment Society
