Maggie Bell & Dave Kelly

Accessible All ages
Two stalwarts of the British R&B scene, two great voices, two great reputations. A wonderful mix of acoustic blues, soul and good times, and no doubt a little humour.
Maggie Bell – Scotland’s Queen of Soul, founder member of Stone the Crows, later had an incredibly successful solo career on both sides of the Atlantic, now once again back on the music scene after a 20 year lay off. She was a resounding hit at the Led Zepplin reunion concert in 2008. Maggie is ‘the Voice’ joining Rod Stewart on ‘Every Picture Tells A Story’ and the late great Long John Baldry on his famous version of Leadbelly’s ‘Black Girl.’ This will be Maggie’s FIRST EVER performance in Canada!
Dave Kelly – London’s slide guitar king, having learned his trade in the backing bands of, and recording with, Son House, Howlin Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Buddy Guy, Junior Wells to name but five blues legends, a founder member of The Blues Band, still wowing audiences after nearly 30 years. Dave returns to Canada and this time, brings a very special friend with him!
