Tonight! Freedom Blues @ Hugh's Room... 


Freedom Blues CD Release concert


   NEW CD: “In Freedom Blues Canadian roots music icon Ken Whiteley has crafted a timely set of songs that address both contemporary and historical struggles for the freedom endemic to a healthy, progressive society. Deftly drawing on a wide range of musical sources including blues, gospel and, for lack of a better word, folk, Freedom Blues is a landmark album in Whiteley's career and Canadian roots music in general.”  

~ Grammy Award winning music professor, Rob Bowman

CD RELEASE CONCERT: TONIGHT!  I'm celebrating the release of my newest recording "Freedom Blues", with an allstar band on Friday, April 1 at Hugh's Room in Toronto. Joining me will be the glorious vocal harmonies of the Fabulous Levy Sisters, a 3 piece horn section that includes Shuffle Demon saxophonists Richard Underhill and Perry White with trumpeter Ewan Divitt, Denis Keldie wailing on the organ, all anchored by the heartbeat rhythm of Alastair Whitehead on bass and Bucky Berger on drums.  I will be playing at least 4 of my guitars that night including my Grit Laskin 6 & 12 strings, my vintage National resophonic and my original “Mr. Whale” electric dobro that I purchased new in 1966. I hope you can join us.  ~ Ken
