Tri Continental in YYC
Three seasoned guitarists got together casually several years ago to fuse their celtic, blues, folk and African rhythms. The sound was so different, and so popular it now has a category of its own: "universal blues".
Bill Bourne Lester Quitzau Madagascar Slim

Bill Bourne was raised in a musical family in rural Alberta and is the recipient of multiple Juno awards. Bill has received international acclaim for his recordings and live performances. A mainstay on the international roots scene, life on the road is reflected in Bill's music - powerful rhythms and soulful songs steeped in World Beat, Blues, Cajun, Celtic, Folk, Flamenco, Latin, Funk, Poetry and more.
vocals, acoustic guitars, fiddle

Lester Quitzau of Dutch/Danish descent, plays soulful acoustic electric folk, blues and roots music. With an understated mastery and grace, the Juno award winning musician explores the space between the notes, as much as the notes themselves. Lesters musical roots run so deep he can craft a musical cloth that quilts together ringing peals of West African-sounding guitar with the feel of free-form jazz, threaded through with unmistakable strands of gutbucket blues. vocals, slide guitars, acoustic and electric guitars, kalimba

Madagascar Slim, born Randriamananjara Radofa Besata Longin in Antananaviro Madagascar is a Juno award recipient for his debut album and a good example for a truly bi-cultural artist. An expert in the popular "Salegy" dance style featuring intricate fingerpicking patterns, his life was changed forever when he found the music of Jimi Hendrix. He has been inflicted with the blues virus ever since. vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, valiha
