Michael Jerome Browne- a couple of Montreal shows

(En français plus bas)

Hello folks,
I wanted to draw attention to a couple of shows I will be doing, one quite soon (September 27) and one in a few months (January 24, 2015).

On Saturday, September 27, I will be doing a solo concert at luthier Michael Greenfield's workshop in parc-ex. If you are interested in hearing me and perhaps glancing at some lovely handmade guitars, send an email to:
(Please do not just show up, if you happen to know where he's located. Tickets MUST be reserved by email).

On Saturday, January 24, I will be launching a brand new CD! It will be called Sliding Delta, and features a whole bunch of classic rural blues from days gone by. The concert/launch will be at the Petit Campus, part of Hello Darlin' Productions' Wintergreen Concert Series.

I will send another reminder or two in December/January.

I will try to do different songs at the two shows, to encourage people to come to both. At Greenfield's I will do a mix of songs from all my current albums, and at the launch I will focus on the new album.

Hope to see lots of you at both shows!

Bonjour à tous,
J'aimerais vous signaler deux spectacles que je donne à Montréal, l'un très bientôt (27 septembre) et l'autre dans quelques mois (24 janvier, 2015).

Samedi le 24 septembre, je donne un concert dans l'atelier du luthier Michael Greenfield dans Parc-Extention. Si ça vous intéresse de m'entendre et en même temps de voir de belles guitares faites à la main, envoyez un courriel à:
(S'il vous plaît, n'arrivez pas sans réservation- il faut ABSOLUMENT réserver par courriel).

Samedi le 24 janvier, je lance un nouveau disque! Il sera intitulé Sliding Delta et contiendra beaucoup de blues classique rural de l'âge d'or (années '20-'30). Le concert/lancement aura lieu au Petit Campus, dans la série de concerts Wintergreen de Hello Darlin' Productions.

Je vous enverrai un rappel en décembre/janvier.

Les deux spectacles seront différents, au premier je ferrai un mélange de chansons de tous mes disques; au deuxième le focus sera sur le nouvel album. Venez aux deux spectacles!

Merci à tous/thank you all!

Michael Jerome Browne



Carolyn Fe Blues Collective


September was quite a busy month with television appearances, radio interviews and the website update! You've got to see the new look at Visit the new page, spread the word to your friends, let them know about the monthly newsletter!

October comes at us full speed ahead. Here are the upcoming shows for the month

October 4: Carolyn Fe joins her Blues Sisters for the Naughty Hot Stoves & Fruit Baskets show at Hugh's Room in Toronto. It's going to be a wild night of old style dirty Blues in a naughty kind of way. RSVP: 416-561-6604 $30 advance, $32.50 at the door (HST not included)

October 10: Carolyn Fe Blues Collective steps up on stage at the House of Jazz, Montreal. It's a Friday night so let yours hair down and get a week's worth of work out of your system. RSVP: 514-840-8656, Address: 2060 rue Aylmer, Montreal, Qc H3A 2E3

October 18: Carolyn Fe is back onstage in Toronto's Theatre Passe Muraille's "Life, Death and The Blues" written and conceived by Raoul Bhaneja. This innovative concert/theatre hybrid created by Gemini nominated actor and Maple Blues Award winner, Raoul Bhaneja, combines autobiography, interview, live music and a multi-media canvas that explores the power, passion and meaning of the blues. Carolyn Fe makes a guest appearance on the matinee show at 2pm

October 31: Halloween at the House of Jazz, Laval! Forget the ghostly goblin costumes. Step on out in style - 1920's Flapper Dresses, Fedora Hats, Wing Tipped Shoes, Zoot Suits is what we're looking for. We'll be Bluesin' it up for you!
