Harpdog Brown Review

Harpdog BrownWho let the Dog out?

Vancouver’s HARPDOG BROWN was on the loose at BOTR @ The Cove Inn, Westport Friday night and the crowd loved it – eating up his “take no prisoners” harmonica playing, deep Bluesy voice, great selection of songs (most of them original) and entertaining showmanship. Now I know what western Canadian and Pacific Northwest Blues fans have been talking about for years! Harpdog has the kind of feel for the Blues that only comes with experience and he’s got a ton of it. His young guitarist from Victoria – Jordan Edmonds – accompanied him beautifully all night long – not showy just tight and good. And of course Downchild members Gary Kendall on bass and Mike Fitzpatrick on drums provided a rock solid backline. The Cove buffet was delicious as usual, the dance floor stayed packed all night and $560 was raised for the WESPORT LIBRARY. All in all – a wonderful evening. What a terrific way to kick off the new season!

Commend Cards:

Harpdog Brown Blues Band“Great relaxed atmosphere, friendly people, good music. Keepin’ the Blues alive!” 9’s and 10’s out of 10 for venue, food, service, band and sound.
Laura Reeves, Smiths Falls ON (regular attendee)

“Great show! Harpdog makes that harp talk!”
Daphne Buckley, Portland ON (regular attendee)

“A perfect 10 out of 10 plus bonus points for building such a warm, groovy community here! Watch for our full review of this night in the November issue”
Kris & Rob Riendeau, The Humm Arts & Entertainment newspaper, Almonte ON www.thehumm.com

“The food & service was super! Harpdog Brown was extremely enjoyable. 10 out of 10 for everything”
Denise LaViolette, Kingston (first-timer)

BETWEEN THE LINES: A Canadian Songwriter Summit with Dean McTaggart, Terry Tufts, Rick Fines, and Kevin Head
Old friends reunite on stage for a special performance before the day of Cove mainstay, Kevin Head’s marriage!
Kevin Head is an accomplished singer/songwriter. You can read about him or hear him regularly at The Cove. He is the Host of the evening!
Terry Tufts
…is a finger-style guitarist living off-grid with his wife and daughter in the bush in North Frontenac, Ontario.
Terry has been playing music since 1974. His father’s job with the Canadian Government moved the family to Denver, Colorado in the U.S. in the 1960’s at a time when the folk and rock music genres were influencing opinion everywhere.
In 1974 he moved to Fredericton, New Brunswick, to begin pursuing his own musical career as a singer-songwriter and guitarist, as well as working as a session musician and sideman for a variety of artists including David Francey, Ian Tamblyn, The Arrogant Worms, Wayne Rostad, Susan Aglukark, and George Fox. He has 7 albums to his credit, one unreleased. He blends a well-traveled personal history into music without boundaries.
Dean McTaggart
…his professional career started as the lead singer/songwriter for the Canadian rock/pop band “The Arrows” in 1981. An independent release”Misunderstood” was followed by two albums for A&M records which produced the hit singles “Meet me in the Middle”,”Talk Talk”, and “Heart of the City”. When the band broke up in 1986 Dean went on to be a staff songwriter, penning many hits including “Heaven Help my Heart” – a top ten song for country superstar Wynonna Judd, ” Darkhorse” – a number one in Canada for Amanda Marshall which Elton John called ‘a sure fire hit’ on Rosie O’Donnell, ”Birmingham’ – a top twenty song worldwide for Amanda Marshall, as well as hits for Anne Murray, Terri Clark, Rita Coolidge, The Guess Who, Johnny Reid, The Rankin Family, Blues artists Shakura S’Aida, Danny Brooks and many others.
In 1998, McTaggart was nominated for the Juno Award for “Songwriter of the Year” for his works recorded by Amanda Marshall, Wynonna Judd and Tina Arena. Dean has released three solo discs, the most recent being 2010’s Drop the Needle in the Groove.
Dean’s most recent project is an 8 piece soul band called Ultrasound that features a who’s who of Canadian musicians…
(here’s kind of a fun article for you from the 1998 issue of Billboard Magazine on Dean: http://books.google.ca/books?id=-AkEAAAAMBAJ&lpg=PA48&ots=c3_WCZ7UlE&dq=dean%20mctaggart%20songwriter&pg=PA48#v=onepage&q=dean%20mctaggart%20songwriter&f=false)
Rick Fines
…based in Peterborough, Rick Fines is one of Canada’s leading blues, roots and slide guitarists, playing The Cove 5 times for the Blues on the Rideau Series. A veteran of the North American folk and blues circuits, Rick has won the Maple Blues Award as a solo artist, and has won a Juno Award and several Thomas Handy Awards for his work with the band Jackson Delta. Known for his virtuosic finger-style and slide guitar playing and his engaging stage presence, Rick delights audiences with soulful songs, wonderful stories and a mesmerizing musical experience.
Rick has performed and collaborated with a wide range of musicians, including legendary blues piano player Pinetop Perkins, famed songstress Colleen Peterson and folk icon Penny Lang, as well as Willie P. Bennett, Carlos del Junco, Suzie Vinnick and many more.
Rick has worked as a youth mentor at the Winnipeg Folk Festival and is a regular participant in Ottawa Bluesfest’s popular “Blues in the Schools” program. His obvious love of roots music is an inspiration to all. Listeners are fascinated by his playing, singing and songwriting skills, as well as his vast knowledge and love of the musical and social history of the blues.
Rick’s acclaimed CDs include “Nothing Halfway“, “Out Of The Living Room“, “Arcadia” and “Live At The Harvest “. He has also recorded an instructional DVD to share his exceptional guitar techniques.

CROOKED WOOD (Kingston/Perth Road Village, Folk/Celtic)
Crooked Wood is the Kingston-based Celtic/Folk trio of Chris Murphy, Steve Kennedy, and Jon McLurg. Having played concerts and festivals across Ontario, Crooked Wood has shared the stage with artists such as Murray McLauchlan, J.P. Cormier, and Leahy. Tight harmonies and acoustic instrumental accompaniment (guitar, mandolin, banjo, Irish Bouzouki, ukulele, Bodhran) bring out the beauty and energy in their original songs and their creative interpretations of songs drawn from Celtic, folk, bluegrass, and popular music genres. Joining Crooked Wood for the evening will be fiddler and multi-instrumentalist Brian Flynn. Amalgamating gorgeous folklore and traditional celtic with east coast song, naturally, they are HUGE fan favourites in the Westport area.
