Canada Blues Music

What, there are good blues artists in Canada? Well, yes there are! Although live music seems to have become more scarce in recent years, there are still great blues artists out there, and there are plenty of good ones in Canada.

The Maple Blues Awards is Canada's national blues awards program. Its goal is to promote blues music across Canada, and to recognize outstanding achievement in the field.

As a fresh way to find out what award-winning Canadian blues sounds like, let's have a listen to some of the Canadian artists who were winners at the Maple Blues Award 2010. These are youtube videos I found of these artists.

Special mention - do listen to the late Jeff Healey clip - it's from another great album called Mess of Blues (2009). The award for Recording of the Year 2009 is for the album Songs From The Road. Jeff was an incredible player who is sorely missed.
