Guitar Week With Colin Linden@Hugh’s Room-Mon.,July 15th, 2019

By Wayne Baggs
One of Toronto’s most significant music exports comes home for a one-off gig at Hugh’s Room Live as part of guitar week. Joined by his old buddies John Dymond on bass and drummer Gary Craig, Colin does what Colin always does.

A great setlist of music spanning decades and honouring pieces of music’s past. Colin and the boys make it sound fresh and as listenable as it ever was. You can get a sense of the profound affect meeting and hearing Howlin Wolf at the age of 11 has had on Colin’s musical career.

Colins playing is as tasteful as it’s ever been. What a great addition and treat to have this performance as part of Guitar Week. Colin also announced Blackie and The Rodeo Kings have now signed with Warner Music and a new album is due soon.

He also mentioned that the album he produced for Keb’ Mo is just released. Always great to watch talent like this at the Hug’s Room Live. Hard to beat.

We would like to thank Jane Harbury for the invitation during Guitar Week.
