Harpdog Brown, Casati coming to Cafe Verve

By Medicine Hat News on October 4, 2019.

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.
