Canberra Blues Society presents Julian James down in the Keller
Everything about Julian James shouts the love of traditional blues for all to hear. His style is rooted in the old-time acoustic strummers of a bygone era, and he joins next generation artists such as Larkin Poe, Blind Boy Paxton and Pokey LaFarge in bringing authentic new voices to a style that has endured for 100 years.
Still in his twenties, Julian James has spent most of his adult life on the road, first as front man of Blues festival heroes ‘Catfish Voodoo’ and on his own. 2019’s ‘Silver Spade’ is the second album in his catalogue as a solo artist and Julian brings the experience of a seasoned performer and a fresh perspective to this set of traditional songs by artists like Ma Rainey and early Muddy Waters, as well as originals like the title track Silver Spade.
Says Julian of his love of old blues:
“Catfish Voodoo played straight Chicago Blues, so I started with Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, and Willie Dixon; and then when I went out solo, I just kept going back in time and discovering people like Mississippi John Hurt, Leadbelly, Son House and knew that’s what I wanted to do.”
Tales of love, loss and debauchery from 2018 sit happily with their ancestors from the 1930’s as James deliver his laconic vintage drawl from some porch or other.

The Michael Buble Show is an authentic reproduction of the sounds of Michael Buble. This production show leaves nothing to the imagination of a fantastic night of entertainment as it pays attention to every detail.
Mitch Capone becomes Michael Buble in The Michael Buble Show and even the most discerning Buble fan will absolutely fall in love with the awesome style and smooth tone of his voice. At the age of 18 Mitch Capone won the role of Australian rock ‘n’ roll icon Col Joye in a local theatre production of ‘Shout – The musical’ and was introduced to the wild sounds of 50s Rock ‘n’ Roll. Mitch is a regular on cruise lines such as Emerald Princess, Norwegian Star, Sun Princess, and Dawn Princess. Mitch has a smooth style and oozes charisma and portrays a “cool” Michael Buble with a loveable and comedy aspect. His great looks, infectious personality and great voice never fails to captivate audiences anywhere.
You will hear all the Buble greats including Crazy Love, Cry Me a River, Everything, How Sweet it Is, Quando Quando, Mack the Knife, Can’t Buy Me Love, You Don’t Know Me, What a Wonderful World, How Can You Mend a Broken Heart and many more.
Supported by his band, this marriage culminates in a magnificent concert performance as like any Michael Buble concert, audiences will be intimately entertained in a close up and personal mode, like being in your living room.

Bonnie Kay & The Bonafides host CBS Xmas Party Blues Jam on Sunday 20 December 1 – 4.30pm
COVID-safe rules apply. MAXIMUM CAPACITY 80
Bonnie Kay and the Bonafides is a 6- piece tour de force of jazzy blues and roots. Take an acoustic guitar, add a crazy-cool horn section, a super-slick rhythm section, flavoured with some immensely talented soloists and some quirky songs with vocal harmonies too… It’s a feast, I tell you.
With a debut album that landed in the top ten of the Australian Blues and Roots Charts and spent six months in the top twenty five, Bonnie Kay and the Bonafides have exploded onto the Australian Blues and Roots scene, performing at major festivals around the country, including: Blues at Bridgetown 2019 (WA), Echuca Winter Blues Festival (VIC) 2018 and 2019, Sydney Blues and Roots , Docklands Blues Festival (VIC), Australian Blues Festival, Kiama Jazz and Blues, Agnes Water Blues, Roots and Rock (QLD), Jamberoo Music Festival Country Blues and Roots Festival (Cooma).
Bonnie Kay, a contemporary American singer/songwriter from Philly uses acoustic, finger-picking, slide-guitar techniques to deliver her own red-hot, soulful, sassy and sexy sound.
Her Bonafide companions? Add Wayne Rigby on saxophone and flute, Catherine Golden on double bass, Calvin Welch on drums, Claire Hollander on trumpet and Illya Szwec on electric guitar and you’ve got a Bonafide Band with a capital B. That, there, is the triple truth, Ruth!
The host band will be followed by some of the finest musicians in the Canberra region, jamming together for a great afternoon of live blues music.
