Media Release from the North Shore Music Association - July 28, 2019

Blues fans! We have exciting news. Ray Bonneville will be here in August. 

Ray Bonneville strips his bluesy Americana to its essentials, steeps it in the humid grooves of the South, and creates a poetry of hard living and deep feeling. Rich guitar and harmonica, spare and spunky rhythms, and Bonneville's deep, evocative voice combine to give this “song and groove man” his unmistakable sound. 

Since leaving his career as a studio and touring blues musician to write and perform his own music, Bonneville has released nine albums, won Canada’s Juno and other prestigious awards, and earned an enthusiastic following in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
