HE'S BEEN CALLED A BLUES EVANGELIST

Think of the old Chess Records and Sun Records of the late 40's and early 50's.  Harpdog says "Blues has a healing power.  It's a beautiful celebration of our perfectly flawed lives.  We help people forget about their issues of the moment and then they realize that we all have our issues, and that's ok."

They love the traditional early electric blues sound and they perform that style with authenticity.  Some call it a Chicago Blues sound.  Harpdog calls it Classic Blues.  Late 40's and early 50's vintage electric blues.  They perform mostly originals yet they often include great songs of the masters from that era.  Think Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Jimmy Reed and of course, Muddy Waters.  Audiences say that they love hearing that lo-fi vinyl sound live on stage.  They do it all while using vintage gear as well.  

Harpdog Brown is a gifted vocalist and an imaginative harmonica player.  Guitarist Jordie Edmonds plays a lowdown understated style yet has plenty of flash when needed.  Doghouse bass player Pat Darcus drives the engine with his percussive style.  The Travelin' Blues Show sometimes includes other guest musicians that befit the band and situation such as sought-after drummer Andy Graffiti.  Regardless of the incarnation you see, this show is unique, refreshing and leaves audiences feeling good and wanting more.

He is a three-time Maple Blues Award Winner (2014, 2015 and 2016), Fraser Valley Music Award Winner, three-time Western Canadian Music Awards Nominee, Juno Nominee and the only Canadian to win the coveted  Muddy Award.  In 2016 he was nominated for 3 Maple Blues Awards (Harmonica Player, Male Vocalist and Album of the Year) for his latest release Travelin’ With The Blues.  The album features a duet with Charlie Musselwhite and was produced by the Beale Street Blues Bopper himself, Little Victor with guest appearances from Kid Andersen, Big John Atkinson and more.  

The band was juried to showcase at Blues Summit in Toronto, and Folk Alliance International in Kansas City.  They also represented the White Rock Blues Society in the 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis.  

His recent album release Travelin' With The Blueshas hit numerous roots and blues charts including Living Blues and holding steady in the top five Classic Blues Albums on Roots Music Report for North America.  This follows his Top 20 charting 2014 release What It Is (Roots Music Report International Blues Albums).
