Intimate music series with Lloyd Spiegal
Lloyd Spiegel is a trailblazer at the forefront of modern blues. He is one of his country’s most recognised guitarists, recently being named in Australian Guitar Magazine’s list of the top 50 Australian guitarists of all time.
A touring artist since age 11, the 7–time Australian Blues Award winner has one of the most unique stories in music. He has sat with the founding fathers of modern blues from Brownie McGhee to Luther Allison and has supported the likes of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan and Etta James on tour.
Spiegel returns to Canada with his 8th release, Backroads—a hard edged, personal and brutally honest account of his life. Backroads follows up from his previous albums, which all debuted in the top 10 of the Australian independent music charts and for several months, held the #1 spot on the Australian Blues Chart.
“To be able to present Lloyd Spiegel in a Backstage Pass show is really exciting,” says Kieran Keller, Harbourfront’s Executive Director. “The whole audience will be on stage watching him play only a few feet from them.“
Harbourfront presents Lloyd Spiegel—Backstage Pass on October 24, 7:30 pm.
