Colin James Blues Trio Key City bound
Multi-Juno Award winner and platinum recording artist Colin James will be taking his Blues Trio on tour next spring, and the tour will see several stops in the Interior of B.C. much to the delight of James’ thousands of loyal fans in this province.
James released his 19th album ‘Miles to Go’ in September of last year. On the album James recorded nine new covers from his favourite artists; Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Little Willie John, Robert Johnson, and others. He also added two original songs, “I Will Remain,” and “40 Light Years.”
Miles to Go is the critically acclaimed follow up to Blue Highways. Both albums reached number one of the Roots Music Report’s Blues Charts.
Blue Highways also landed him one of his biggest hits “Riding in the Moonlight,” a Willie Dixon song that James covered when busking in the streets and subways of Toronto and Montreal. The track landed on a Spotify playlist and garnered millions of streams.
Major commercial hits are no stranger to one of Canada’s most well-known artists. Songs like “Just Came Back,” “Five Long Years,” “Voodoo Thing,” “Keep on Loving Me Baby,” “Into the Mystic,” “Man’s Gotta be a Stone” and many more.
In March of 2020, James will embark on a Western Canada Tour with his popular and intimate Blues Trio format with a stop at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on March 22.
Tickets will be available on Friday, November 22. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.
