February 10: Sunday afternoon swamp romp with Tony D, Andy J. Forest, and Steve Dunn.

BobCat House Concerts is heading south in February. Unfortunately, it’s only a metaphor, and we will be our pasty white selves for the foreseeable future… but even so, there’s a treat to be had.

We in Ottawa are lucky to have guitarist Tony D as one of our own. For years, he’s played with anyone and everyone and become a linchpin of Ottawa’s blues scene. And Tony is bringing his endless creativity to BobCat, along with a couple of great friends of his.

Even though Andy J. Forest was born in Washington State, his soul found him in Louisiana, where he has become a tremendously acclaimed singer, writer, harmonica player, and artist. With a lucky 13 albums to his credit (including a live CD recorded with Tony D and the band at the Rainbow), Andy is a frequent visitor to Ottawa.

Tony and Andy are bringing along veteran percussionist Steve Lund, who’s playe
d with them before, as well as the Drew Nelson band, blues legend Dutch Mason, and many others.

Just the facts:

  • Andy J. Forest, Tony D and Steve Lund
  • Sunday, February 10, 1:00 mingling, 2:00 show
  • Suggested donation $20
