Hornby Island Blues Workshop

Brandon Isaak

Brandon didnít get everything done that he wanted to do in the Workshop last year so we have invited him back to take up his guitar teaching and offer up some of his expertise on songwriting. Recently nominated for two 2014 Maple Blues Awards for acoustic act and Song Writer of the Year, 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, Brandonís 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. Check him out in both forms here and here.
