The Black Hen Travelling Roadshow brings together a talented group of musicians for a stellar night of songs, stories and down home musical magic. Featured during the evening will be Alvin Youngblood Hart and Roxanne Potvin. Alvin is a skilled Mississippi bluesman and a rare treat, having not toured Canada in some time. He has played with Bo Diddly and Taj Mahal and his first album was nominated for a Blues Award (The Blues Society) for Best Accoustic Album. He's currently working on his third album. Roxanne toured on the 2014 CP Holiday train, bringing the holiday spirit from coast to coast, before jumping on Via Rails Artist on Board program. She has been nominated for a Juno and numerous Maple Blues Awards, with her 4 critically acclaimed album releases. Leading the evening is Black Hen label boss and virtuoso blues guitarist, Steve Dawson. Steve Dawson's natural style and talent has made him an indelible fixture in the Canadian roots music scene. Steve will be joined by Prairie Oyster frontman and CCMA Hall of Famer Russell deCarle. No stranger to Festival Place, Russell deCarle's solo material, departs from country and buries itself deep in the roots, though it can't be pinned in any one genre.
