Central Music Festival Society Presents TRI-CONTINENTAL
September 27, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Central Music Festival Society presents TRI-CONTINENTAL – a collaborative evolution fusing the talents of three accomplished guitar-players, singers and songwriters. There are no musical boundaries present in this one-of-a-kind roots / blues / folk / world music mélange.
Bill Bourne, Lester Quitzau and Madagascar Slim are well-recognized and respected artists with successful solo careers and major players in the Canadian roots and blues music scene who have individually and collectively received 4 Juno awards and 10 nominations. They are 2019 International Music Award Nominees for Album of the Year with Dust Dance and 2019 Western Canadian Music Awards nominees for Roots Group of the Year. Joined by multi-talented drummer, percussionist and vocalist Michael Treadway, together as TRI-CONTINENTAL, something very special and magical happens with the grand improvisor, the kidnapper of the blues, and inventor and promoter of the universal Malagasy blues sound.
