We have live entertainment with Tim Williams the 2014 International Blues Challenge Award Winner (in Memphis as best Solo Artist, A string of Maple Blues Award nominations, three JUNO award nominations, and roughly a dozen awards from Real Blues magazine attest to the high caliber of his work. Tim was also honoured as Guitarist Of The Year for 2012 by the Calgary Blues Music Association. Tim’s blend of passionate, soulful vocals and awe-inspiring chops on a number of instruments including finger-style and slide guitar, mandolin and Hawaiian guitar (among others), along with his wry sense of humor and deep knowledge of blues and roots music, continue to win fans everywhere he plays.
This year’s wine representatives include: Mark Anthony Brands, Peller Estates, Martin & Peacock, Constellation Brands, Peter Mielzynski Agencies Ltd.
