Chicago Blues Duo with Shrimp Daddy and Justin St-Laurent – Thu Dec 12 (Blues)

Michael “Shrimp Daddy” Reid is a journeyman harp player and frontman who originally hails from Montreal and has rapidly developed into a driving force in vocalizing, interpreting and writing Chicago and West Coast jump and swing blues. After 15 years in the GTA, Michael moved out east and has been a staple in the East Coast blues scene since then.

He will be joined by young, up and coming Chicago bluesman Justin St-Laurent. Growing up in Ottawa, Justin was introduced to the blues whilst living in Halifax by Buck Tingley and has quickly developed into an established player around town. He also plays with Shawn McPherson, young harmonica prodigy from Montreal, and his band where they’ve played various blues festivals around Quebec.

The pair will be playing Chicago-style blues, such as Little Walter, Jimmy Rodgers, and William Clarke in duo form.
