Brown is bringing the blues.
Specifically, Harpdog Brown is playing the blues at Cafe Verve on Monday at 6 p.m.
“I speak the blues like it’s the truth, and it is,” Brown says on his website. “I do feel like I’m a servant of the people. A missionary if you will. Music can heal people if they pay attention to the messages in these songs.”
Brown is a three-time winner for harmonica player of the year at the Maple Blues Awards, and has racked up countless other Maple Blues Awards nominations. He’s also been a nominee at the Western Canadian Music Awards and the Juno Awards.
Brown’s latest album is “For Love & Money.”
On Oct. 16, Winnipeg folk trio Casati will play the Cafe from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
The band blends “the heartbreak of a country ballad, the vocal harmonies of 1950’s and 60’s pop, and the instrumental virtuosity of jazz and classical music, creating a sound that is familiar yet original,” according to an email sent to the News.
