Dad’s day under the tent at Blues Fest

The 22nd edition of the venerable Barrie Jazz and Blues Festival celebrates Father’s Day with a gift of music in downtown Barrie under the tent at Heritage Park.
The day includes a tribute to Muddy Waters featuring the Jack de Keyser Band playing ‘Muddy Waters Live at Newport 1960.’ Fans of the blues are sure to enjoy this show as not only does it feature the songs and sounds of Muddy Waters, it also brings the talents of Jack De Keyser to the shores of Kempenfelt Bay.
A Maple Blues and Juno awards winner, de Keyser is one of the preeminent bluesmen playing the Canadian stage today.
The band is scheduled to take to the stage at 6:30. Preceding him is a show featuring Cliff Stevens, playing ‘Slowhand at 70, Eric Clapton Live at the Royal Albert Hall.’ At 2:30 the Lorne Lofsky Trio plays, at 1:00 it’s Mike Branton and at 11 a.m., it’s the Big Tent Revival Meeting.
The Joe Huron Trio with Pat LaBarbera is on hand at the Brewery Bay Food Co., and Aura plays Canvas and Cabernet at 2:00
