Jim Byrnes brings the blues

Award winning blues musician Jim Byrnes is coming to the Tidemark

Award winning, blues musician Jim Byrnes is coming to the Tidemark.

He will play songs from his Juno award winning album, House of Refuge, this Saturday. Gospel vocalist trio, The Sojourners, sing back up on the album and will join Byrnes at the Tidemark.

Recorded and produced in Vancouver in 2004, the album is described as soulful with strong gospel currents.

The album won a Juno for Blues Album of the Year at the 2006, and two Canadian Folk Music Awards, among others.

Byrnes was born in St. Louis Missouri, but has been living in Vancouver since the mid-1970’s. He started singing and playing blues guitar at age 13, and his first professional gig was in 1964.

The Sojourners are made up of Marcus Mosely, Will Sanders and Ron Small.

The Vancouver based trio often sing back up for various artists, but also produced an album called Hold On, which was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award in the Outstanding Roots Recording Category.

The Tidemark will start rocking to the bluesy soulful tunes off House of Refuge at 7:30 p.m., and tickets cost $35, or $15 for students.
