Hornby Island Blues Workshop

Over the years we've heard a ton of great music at the Hornby Island Blues Festival. We decided that it wouldn't be fair to keep it all to ourselves. You can bring the magic of our electric and acoustic concerts home with our 2 CDs and DVD recorded live at the Hornby Island Community Hall. They are full of amazing performances from some of Canada's greatest Blues and Roots musicians, jamming together on one stage. This is the only place in the world where you can hear music like this.

Blues On The Rock DVD

Imagine gathering some of the best blues and roots musicians and moving them west, further west, right off the continent. Each May a group of the finest blues players around arrive on Hornby Island, where they present workshops to over seventy students. Some of the instructors are old friends and collaborators, but many are meeting for the first time. They congregate at the Community Hall, where, for the next week, they will reinforce a vibrant rural music scene.

While the purpose of the blues workshop is to expose the skills and styles of stellar Canadian blues musicians, the rewards come when the sun goes down and the music cranks up. When the instructors mix and match on stage the results can be jaw dropping, awe inspiring, hair raising, never to be repeated feats of musical magic. In 2006 the Hornby Island Blues Society and Outer Island Productions made a DVD of the instructors acoustic performance. When you get it in your hands, hang on to it. You'll have the best seat in the house!
