Hornby Island Blues Society

The Blues Odyssey 2018

After a couple of decades of assembling Blues Reviews with innovating performances by legends of the blues and roots genre and showcasing the emerging talents of those who are translating this musical form for the 21st century, we are back once more with the Blues Odyssey.

Imagine if you will a dozen top shelf musicians who after rehearsing intensely for a week, living with each other, playing music, and working daily to share much of what they know with other blues disciples, you say ‘okay’ now let’s put on a show. This is the rich and spontaneous nature of Hornby’s Blues Odyssey. Take a minute to read the names of this poster. Collectively they have performed hundreds of shows this year, as a group they have a shelf full of albums, and more than a hundred years of musical experience. Get ready to be spellbound.

The 2018 Hornby Island Blues Odyssey will entertain you with all the blues you love – Memphis, Delta, or Country; and whatever blues shake you down, be they jump, juke, or barrelhouse. Those who have witnessed our past blues reviews know just how special these shows are. Find out for yourself why The Odyssey has to be experienced as the incredible musical happening that it is.
