When the Hornby Island Blues Workshop came into being twenty years ago, most people assumed it would idle away on Hornby Island where it hosted one of the best Blues Instructional Workshops in Canada. From the beginning Hornby Blues intended its mission to be bigger, so when it planned to draw upon the great blues and roots players in Canada to its workshops, it then envisioned a way to take these world class musicians to a larger Blues audience, and the concept of the Blues Odyssey was born.

After more than two decades of assembling Blues Reviews with unmatched performances by legends of the genre and showcasing the emerging talents who are translating the art form for the 21st century, we are back once more. This year the Odyssey features the guitar work of fabled Paul Pigat, Jack De Keyzer, Rick Fines, Cécile Doo-Kingué, Terry Robb, Brandon Isaak, and Ricky Paquette. Read those names again! You are looking at a list of incredible talent and originality. You will never see these players on the same stage together ever again. That is the amazing aspect of Hornby Island’s Odyssey.

This experience is enriched by another award-winning cast of band members including multiple Maple Blues award winner Angel Forrest on vocals accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Denis Coulombe also on vocals. Also on vocals, the incomparable Samantha Martin from Delta Sugar. Topping up this big blues experience is Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne on piano, veteran producer- bassist Alec Fraser, the inventive and talented Steve Mariner (Monkey Junk) on blues harp and holding the time in his precise fashion, Chris Nordquist on drums. There is more awards hardware on this stage than in any other venue in Canada.

Those who have witnessed past shows know just how special The Odyssey truly is. Find out for yourself why the Odyssey must be experienced to take in all its power.
