Event Description

There are no musical boundaries present in this one-of-a-kind blues / folk / world music mélange. Formed in 1999, Tri-Continental builds on artistic respect and a deep passion for and knowledge of the blues.

Bill Bourne, Lester Quitzau and Madagascar Slim present a truly unique and critically acclaimed sound that is soulful and present, intense and atmospheric. Well-recognized and respected artists with successful solo careers, they are indeed major players in the Canadian roots, folk and blues music scene.

Individually and collectively Tri-Continental has received 4 Juno awards and 10 nominations, 2018 Album of the Year nomination for “Dust Dance” at the International Folk Music Awards and 2019 Western Canadian Music Awards nomination for Roots Group / Duo of the Year.

Together as Tri-Continental, something very special and magical happens with Bourne – the grand improvisor, Quitzau – kidnapper of the blues taking it to new dimensions, and Madagascar Slim – a fascination with tradition and evolution found him on the leading edge as promoter of a new sound – the Malagasy blues.

This is clearly evident in the music they create, where sharing and curiosity leads them on fascinating musical explorations resulting in their infectious sound where world, Celtic, Latin, folk, flamenco, blues and African rhythms fuse into one.
