Don’t miss our May 27 show!

Terry Gillespie & the Granary Band


Terry Gillespie

Terry has been playing blues since the late 60’s, playing with the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker. He has performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival twice in recent years.

JUNO award winner Sue Foley, for example, cites Terry as a major influence in her career. She plays lead guitar on his 2006 CD, Brother of the Blues, and has said: “Terry Gillespie is one of the most sincerely talented musicians in Canada. He’s a bluesman to the core, but not in the traditional sense for he has range and influences that take blues to a whole new level. His blues is the truth and it comes through with every word and melody he wraps his soulful voice around. This is real!”

As well as performing with blues greats, he has recorded CDs of his own, most recently Brother of the Blues:

Derek Olive

Modern folk music. Classically trained fingers. Pedal powered hope.

Circling the shadows Derek Olive digs into his guitar and sings songs to find where the light comes from. His second CD Mystery & Dust is a daring collection of songs that blend Olive’s fingerstyle mastery with lyrics and impassioned vocals that make us smile at our own imperfections. Creating his own style that feels refreshingly familiar, Olive’s music teeters somewhere between folk and jazz, on occasion hiding behind the blues and pop.
