February 20/21, 2009



FATHEAD - the 2008 Juno Award Winners for Best Blues CD of the Year and one of Canada's top blues bands - rolled into BLUES ON THE RIDEAU at THE COVE INN, WESTPORT last weekend for a 2 night stand and treated the packed houses (both nights) to a fantastic Show.  This band has been around for 17 years and it shows - John Mays on vocals (2009 Maple Blues Award Male Vocalist of the Year), Al Lerman on harmonica, sax and vocals, Darren Poole on guitar, Omar Tunnoch on bass and Bucky Berger (2009 Maple Blues Award Drummer of the Year nominee) on the skins - a tight, funky, fun, groovin', dancin' double clutch, cross rhythms, passionate, heart and soul blues band. Don't miss a chance to see them if they are in your neck of the woods.


The dynamite combo of great food and hospitality at The Cove, friendly appreciative audiences and world class LIVE blues in a small, intimate setting all in support of local charities continues to attract more and more people - both locally and from afar.  Shows are once again selling out well in advance. So book ahead and don't be disappointed. Make a mini Getaway out of it - well priced accommodation is available at the Inn and nearby B&B's.
572 was raised on Friday night for the Rideau District Museum, $650 on Saturday for the Friends of Foley Mountain bringing this year's 08/09 Season fundraising total so far to $4,116.
