Joel Fafard
Genre: Blues

Award-winning guitarist Joel Fafard sings with the sexy, sandpapered-sounding vocal style of the new generation bluesman. His performances are as authentic as those of a Beale Street busker but infused with a touch of contemporary urban attitude. When he lets rip a solo on his resonator guitar, it's easy to hear how he once earned both a JUNO nomination and a Western Canadian Music Award. As he closes in on 20 years as a professional musician, Joel Fafard has traveled down several distinct paths but regardless of which direction he goes in, his fans seem happy to follow.


Marc Beaudin Trio
Genre: Instrumental

Originally from Sept-Iles in Quebec, Marc Beaudin is a well- known guitarist in Alberta's music scene. He is the driving force behind Edmonton's All-Stars party band, The Retrofitz, and as a freelancer player Marc also performs regularly at Sabor Divino Restaurant. His latest CD An evening at Sabor features his trio: Luis Tovar - Percussion, Mike Lent - Acoustic bass and Marc playing nylon string guitar. For his performance on the patio, Marc will perform a mixture of Brazilian jazz and flamenco compositions.
