Nova Scotia bluesman booked for two nights in January
January 18 & 19
East coast blues musician Garrett Mason will be playing the Pourhouse in Charlottetown January 18 and 19. Mason is a true bluesman at heart. He was raised in Truro, Nova Scotia by his mother Pam, and father, veteran Canadian Bluesman Dutchie Mason. His quest to become a blues musician started at a very early age; being surrounded by blues music, Garrett’s favorite tapes at three years old were Canned Heat and Buddy Rich. What really sealed the deal for Garrett to become a blues guitarist was watching a video of Stevie Ray Vaughn “Live At the El Mocambo”—he was hooked.
“Garrett is the real deal,” says promoter Pat Deighan. “Just a wildly amazing blues show and not to be missed if you’re a fan or not of that genre.” Tickets available at www.trailside.ca, Back Alley Music or call 902-394-3626. Doors at 6:30 pm with music at 8 pm. The Pourhouse is located at 189 Great George St. above the Old Triangle.
