Sugar Brown   
It’s a blues world and Sugar Brown is living in it and “calling all blues” with real grace and style.  The Toronto-based vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist found his full creative voice on It’s A Blues World (Calling All Blues!), his third album released in 2018.

Brown’s brand of dark, sweet, and inconsolable blues has caught the attention of the Canadian music scene, winning the 2013 Toronto Blues Society Talent Search. He learned to play from Chicago’s famed West Side blues raconteur and singer, Taildragger as well as from other blues legends such as Dave Myers and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith. Brown’s songs are passionate, singular, and soulful, constantly resisting generic, mainstream formulations. Sugar Brown is offering us an open-hearted welcome to his blues world.  It would be foolish to resist.

Eve Hell & The Razors 
A monstrously fun, surf-influenced roots combo with a love of horror, country and rockabilly music, Eve Hell and The Razors are led by singer/upright bass player Eve Hell’s desperate, yet sweet n’ smoky vocals. She’s supported by the rock solid reverb and twang of Mike Hell’s guitar and the boom-crash of Richie Ranchero’s drums.

The band started in the genre Psychobilly and has now expanded into something more rootsy and earthy…and more than 3 chords.  Eve Hell & The Razors unleash their high energy show and will rain down their love of rockabilly on Regina’s appreciative festival audience. 

Harpoonist & Axe Murderer  
Combining Rock & Roll swagger and decades-deep blues style, The Harpoonist and Axe Murderer are widely known for their amazing live shows and commanding stage presence.  They have received several nominations for Maple Blues Awards and a Juno award and won the Sirius XM Indie award for Blues Artist of the Year (2013) and West Coast Music Awards for BreakOut Artist of the Year (2017).

Armed with an arsenal of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a road-worn Telecaster, Shawn ‘The Harpoonist’ Hall and Matthew ‘The Axe Murderer’ Rogers kick out raw and primal blues in the tradition of a ‘decades-deep blues style’ while infusing the genre with a jolt of renewed energy.
