About this event

Join Spirit of the Fringe winner and jazz/blues vocalist Jessie Gordon and her team of vagabonds for an evening of raucous barrelhouse blues. Joined by guitarist Bill Lawrie of Tin Dog fame, Jon Matthews on guitar and Kane Shaw on double bass, Barrelhouse is a band full of energy and spirit(s). There are songs for drinking if you're inclined to wine or frisky for whisky, songs for dancing if you're moved to groove, and songs of heartbreak for those who know what it means to lose yourself in the games of life and love. This musical collaboration brings you the best juke joint blues this side of the 129th meridian, a veritable tonic for the soul.
