The popular local Blue Moon Live concert series is at it again, with an upcoming concert on November 11 at 7:30 pm.
The concert features Bob Wiseman who is described as a “fascinating and funny singer/songwriter”. He co-founded Blue Rodeo, with whom he won 5 Junos, before he left to go solo. He has since released some terrific albums and performed/toured with many great artists like Feist and Wilco. He has also been a very important producer and promoter of other Canadian artists. For example, Bob Wiseman volunteered to record and produce Ron Sexsmith’s first record when no record label was interested in him, and then shopped it around because he knew that Ron was a special talent, which landed him a big deal and kickstarted his amazing career.
Bob is famous for his commitment to helping other artists, and he is also a fantastic singer/songwriter himself. He doesn’t perform often anymore, so it is something of a “coup” that he will be performing in the intimacy of the Burritts Rapids Community Hall, says concert organizer John Sobol, who will be opening for him (on sax, stories and songs).
Tickets for the event are just $25 and all are welcome. For more information, visit www.bluemoonlive.ca. To purchase tickets, you can visit https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/blue-moon-live-presents-bob-wiseman-in-burritts-rapids-tickets-733528241717.
