Doc MacLean with Albert Frost CanAfrica Blues Tour
November 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
Opener: Henk Van Ginninken
Ride shotgun on an epic, blues road tour as Doc MacLean and Albert Frost unite in a four wheel, continental drift. Mixing Delta with west Africa, Son House with Ali Farka Toura, electric with acoustic, new stories with old… This Canadian-African collaboration will surprise and delight as it rolls over nine Canadian provinces, coast to coast.
Doc MacLean and Albert Frost. One guy played with Son House, the other with Ali Farka Toure. So now now, CanAfrica Blues: a playful, yet respectful collaboration by these unique, yet complimentary artists – each of whom mix traditional and contemporary blues and roots music from their own continents.
On the ground, it’s an old school, vintage road adventure: the National Steel: jamming a big Lincoln across the continent, stopping in places large and small from coast to coast. “No venue too large, too small, too grand or too humble.” Songs and stories lived in the moment. Africa and North America in joy and sorrow. CanAfrica Blues. Named as one of the top sets at South Africa’s massive, 2017 OppiKoppi festival.
