BLUES ON THE RIDEAU @ THE COVE INN

2018/19 SEASON – our 14th year!

MONTHLY DINNER & SHOW FUNDRAISERS IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL CHARITIES FEATURING SOME OF CANADA’S BEST BLUES BANDS

From Montreal
DAWN TYLER WATSON & THE BEN RACINE BAND

Blues Music Magazine in the U.S. has called Dawn Tyler Watson “one of Canada’s true Blues treasures”. Born in England and raised in Ontario she moved to Montreal decades ago where she earned a BFA in Jazz Studies & Theatre at Concordia. Her powerful, soulful voice is also perfect for singing the Blues – which she loves as much as Jazz – and she’s won 3 Canadian Maple Blues Awards and 9 Quebec Lys Blues Awards over the years to prove it! Last year she teamed up with one of the hottest Soul/Blues/R&B groups in Quebec – the Ben Racine Band – and travelled to the famed International Blues Challenge in Memphis. They won first place beating out over 260 bands from around the world and Ben won Guitarist Of The Year – an amazing double honour. Dawn’s latest album “Jawbreaker” was nominated for the Maple Blues Award for Recording Of The Year in 2017 and she has another record coming out shorty backed once again by the Ben Racine Band. Can’t wait! Although Ben has played BOTR before this is Dawn’s first visit and we are honoured to finally have her here. What a fabulous double bill!

Worlds Collide Africa with Music by Ben Vandergaast at the Cove Inn!

 

“Pamoja tunaweza” means ‘together we can’ in Swahili. We believe that together we can dream that when worlds collide, anything is possible. Our mission is to empower vulnerable and at risk youth to reach their full potential as productive, self sustaining, responsible members of the community.

We also want to provide a safe and healthy environment for our kids to learn and grow, to provide inspiring community role models, to offer life enhancing programs and character development experiences and to offer hope and opportunity. Local schools, residents and business owners have donated their time and efforts by going to Pumoja Tunaweza Boys & Girls Club to help them succeed.

Ben Vandergaast is a full-time keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist. With years of experience in a variety of genres, an exceptional ear, touring experience, and mesmerizing piano skills, he is ready to make your next show or tour unforgettable. Ben’s regular performance schedule mainly consists of his solo “Piano Classics” shows. In these shows, he sings and plays audience requests, drawing from a repertoire of hundreds of hits.
