CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - East Coast blues musician Garrett Mason will be playing the Pourhouse in Charlottetown tonight and tomorrow evening.
Mason is a true bluesman at heart. He was raised in Truro, N.S., by his mother, Pam, and father, veteran Canadian bluesman Dutchie Mason.
His quest to become a blues musician started at a very early age as he was surrounded by blues music, His favorite tapes at three years old were Canned Heat and Buddy Rich. However, what really sealed the deal for him to become a blues guitarist came after watching a video of Stevie Ray Vaughn “Live At the El Mocambo” – he was hooked.
"Garrett is the real deal,” said promoter Pat Deighan. "Just a wildly amazing blues show and not to be missed if you're a fan or not of that genre.”
The Pourhouse is located at 189 Great George St. above the Old Triangle. Tickets are available at Trailside.ca, Back Alley Music or call 902-394-3626. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with music starting at 8 p.m.
