A’Court, Spiegel & Vinnick
About The Event
Now here’s a triple treat from blues heaven! Billing themselves as “an international roots ‘n’ blues kitchen party,” the supremely talented Suzie Vinnick, Lloyd Spiegel, and Charlie A’Court have more than enough singer/songwriter prowess, guitar chops, hilarious stories, and onstage charm to power an entire festival.
Ontario-based Suzie Vinnick has won 10 Maple Blues Awards, a Canadian Folk Music Award, and is a three-time JUNO nominee. As well as owning a beautiful voice reminiscent of the early Bonnie Raitt, Vinnick is also a force-of-nature guitarist who can deftly hop from blues to roots to folk while effortlessly commanding the stage. Well travelled and well recorded, Vinnick is an unforgettable champion of the acoustic blues who’s been called “a unique talent” and “a triple threat singer/songwriter/guitarist” by Blues Blast Magazine.
No less memorable is Australian guitar god Lloyd Spiegel, who’s been acclaimed as “a revelation, the consummate performer, and a Blues and Roots icon” by Rolling Stone Australia. This 14-time Australian Blues Award winner is a superlative six-stringer who has performed solo acoustic concerts all across the world for over 30 years.
Rounding out this all-star trio is the incomparable Charlie A’Court, whose unique blend of roots and soul has made him a five-time East Coast Music Award winner and an eight-time Nova Scotia Music Award Winner (amongst many other accomplishments). Aside from his blazing guitar skills, A’Court has a gorgeous and consummately soulful voice. (Says the CBC’s Bob Mersereau: “Singing high and mighty, rising into falsetto, getting into the groove, or slaying us with tenderness, he’s a singing tour-de-force.”)
Whether performing solo or combining forces for memorable collaborations, these three remarkable musicians will leave you dazzled and delighted. –
