Diana Braithwaite, Chris Whiteley, Bob Hall
Trio and Band UK and Irish Dates August and September 2011


The blues was born in the Mississippi Delta more than a century ago, a vibrant music created out of oppression and social exclusion. As a direct inheritor of the blues tradition, Diana Braithwaite traces the history of the blues from its earliest days to modern times in the new musical Deltaphonic. Songs, stories and artistry are blended together in this fascinating portrait of the most influential music of the twentieth century. Partnering Diana on the stage are Kansas-born multi-instrumentalist Chris Whiteley and British blues piano legend Bob Hall. Awarded three Maple Blues Awards in 2010, including Songwriters Of The Year, as a duo Diana Braithwaite and Chris Whiteley are keeping the blues tradition alive through their concerts of fine original songs. A world-class blues singer, Diana Braithwaite has an international reputation and has been dubbed 'Canada’s National Treasure'. Chris Whiteley has played the blues for 30 years in company with such great artists as Taj Mahal, John Hammond and John Lee Hooker. His own recordings have received many awards and accolades, including Jazz Report Blues Album of the Year, six Juno award nominations and four Maple Blues Awards. Together they are joined by Bob Hall, poll-winning British blues and boogie pianist, for a unique and varied evening’s entertainment, with great vocals, guitar, piano, mandolin, harmonica and trumpet. The sound of the blues is truly Deltaphonic. This is one not to be missed… make sure you get there!
