The Toronto Blues Society presents a blues series in the Melody Bar the first Thursday of every month. There is no admission charge, and the shows begin at 9pm.
Jimmy Bowskill is proving that a young man can indeed play the blues. “My philosophy is that blues is based around the soul and how you are feeling at the time. It is not necessarily about living life and paying your dues. Those crucial recordings of B.B. King were made when he was under 30, Robert Johnson was a young man. It somehow became you have to be old to sing the blues, But I don’t agree. If you feel it, believe in what you’re doing, and put in as much soul as you can, then it will come across.”
