Hornby Island Blues Workshop

Brandon Isaak


Brandon's affinity for the rawness and spontaneity of the blues is second to none, as anyone who has had the privilege of being a part of his audience will tell you. He brings a firebrand style of guitar as well as incredibly stirring vocals that truly has to be witnessed to be appreciated! He is very much in the moment as he rips it up, and we know you'll be impressed with the caliber of his instruction and inspiration at the 2016 Blues Workshop.

Brandon brings a ton of talent, goodwill and enthusiasm to everything he does. Whether stirring up the ghosts of the Mississippi Sheiks, shaking it down as the frontman for the jump band The Twisters, or rolling over Piedmont, Gospel or Swing, Brandon's talent as a player, song writer and singer are couched in real entertainment. And having worked with a host of other great players including Guy Davis, Taj Mahal, Colin Linden, Jeff Healy, and Joe Louis Walker, has coloured his work in unique and exciting ways that his students will really appreciate.
