Willy Blizzard Band
April 21, 2012 @ 8:00 pm
Opener – Jean Greer-McCarthy
Willy Blizzard is riding a musical journey that literally spans the decades, even the centuries. Their 2010 album In From the Coldconveys the emotional depth of a songwriter who is so earth-centred he actually holds a degree in Agriculture.
Willy Blizzard is fronted by lead vocalist John Hough who has shared the stage with David Rea, Jesse Winchester, and Canada’s beloved Valdy. He has opened for Tom Russell at Vancouver’s Rogue Folk Club, and his performance credits include the Vancouver Folk Festival, the Mission Folk Festival, the Filberg Festival, Harrison Festival of the Arts. John’s former Celtic band Under The Mossbrought his warm baritone vocals to wider audiences when his band was the feature at the Expo 86 Folklife pavilion.
