Ken Whiteley is a Canadian roots music legend, with 7 Juno nominations, 16 Maples Blues Awards and a Canadian Folk Music Award in his toolkit. His musical journey has taken him from jug band, folk and swing to blues and gospel. Bringing along an 8-piece band tonight, the sounds will include the glorious harmonies courtesy of the Fabulous Levy Sisters, keys/organ, bass, drumkit – and a 3-piece horn section.

Ken’s live performances showcase his outstanding musicianship on guitars and mandolin, award winning original songs and his powerful vocals, called “…a cross between Pete Seeger and Tony Bennett on 11!” 

In Freedom Blues Canadian roots music icon Ken Whiteley has crafted a timely set of songs that address both contemporary and historical struggles for the freedom endemic to a healthy, progressive society. Deftly drawing on a wide range of musical sources including blues, gospel and, for lack of a better word, folk, Freedom Blues is a landmark album in Whiteley’s career and Canadian roots music in general.”  ~ Grammy Award winning music professor, Rob Bowman
