9:00 pm : Studebaker John
Seating starts at 7:30pm. Show starts at 9pm. $10 pre-sale, $15 day-of-show. General Seating. Please call 403-262-2666 to make your reservations, or email us your phone number & we will call you. info@thebluescan.com The Blues Can... Calgary's premier Live Blues Music room! YOU keep coming so WE can keep 'em coming! Thank You Blues-Canners... WE <3 YOU! Thank you for supporting Calgary's Live Music scene!!!
Taking his stage name from an automobile he once owned, Studebaker John Grimaldi was a product of the vibrant blues scene of Chicago\'s West Side. Becoming a fixture at the open-air flea markets in the Maxwell Street area -- a venue for countless blues buskers -- he began focusing on harmonica after catching performances from the likes of Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson; after taking in a Hound Dog Taylor club date, Grimaldi also turned to guitar. He formed the blues-rock band the Hawks during the early \'70s as a showcase for his reedy vocals, primal harp sound, and blistering slide guitar skills, and in the years to follow also developed into a fine songwriter.
12:00 pm : Tim Williams
Noon-2pm. And half-price bottles of Wine!
Tim has shared stages with a large roster of well known blues and roots music artists, and the following list is by no means complete: Taj Mahal, Big Jack Johnson, Rory Block, Roy Rogers, The Earl Scruggs Revue, John Fahey, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, Dr. John, The Holmes Brothers, David Lindley, Ramblin\' Jack Elliott, Mary Flower, Paul Geremia, John Hammond, Martin Simpson, Guy Davis, Eric Bibb, Odetta, B.B. King, Robert Lockwood Jr., Honeyboy Edwards, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy. Tim's live solo shows (he also works with his band, the Electro-Fires) are a trip down the river of North American music...blues, ragtime, old-time country with dashes of Mexican and Hawaiian influence, performed on a variety of string instruments.
