About Colin;
When critically-acclaimed Canadian recording artist and versatile singer-songwriter Colin Fowlie arrived on the scene he brought with him a storied past, unique and compelling compositions in song, and charismatic vocal stylings. He turned heads with his debut full-length album “Party Music” and has demonstrated tremendous growth and exploration, making an emphatic statement with his sophomore album “East of Nowhere” in 2021.
Fowlie continues to evolve his craft as not only a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and touring performer but also as a music educator, mentor, and content creator. He spends the balance of his time with family or exploring the world on two wheels with the wind in his face.
The unique character of his songs fuse elements of folk, rock, blues and Americana/Canadiana into a special blend of universally themed storytelling that, along with his down-to-earth personality, create magic that audiences adore.

Blues Series: Stevie Ray Vaughn Tribute

                                

Just five weeks after the release of his debut LP, Texas Flood, Austin guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughn was already well on his way to cementing his status as a giant of the blues. However, when he crossed the border for a sweltering July date in 1983 at the fabled El Mocambo in Toronto, a legend was born.
Stevie Ray Vaughn Live at The El Mocambo is a historic set that included scorching originals mixed with covers from blues titans like Buddy Guy, Howlin’ Wolf, Lonnie Mack and John Lee Hooker. The night also extended to rock’s lineage by including three Jimi Hendrix covers, proving that Stevie Ray was part of an exciting new breed, complete with it’s own set of reference points. As for the performance itself, it was delivered with a fire and passion that was uniquely Stevie’s and arced from emotionally raw to fiercely powerful.
On March 13th, join us at Dolan’s Pub as our winter blues series continues with a faithful recreation of this legendary live performance, on its 40th anniversary, along with a bonus set of SRV favourites. Connor Fox and Jonnie Price hold up their end of the bargain by leading the guitar charge, while Jamie Guitar and Andrew DeMerchant anchor the night in their respective roles as Double Trouble. This show is a ‘must-see’ for any fan of the guitar.

Blues Series: Theresa Malenfant and The Instigators

                                

If there were any artist deserving of the title of ‘Queen of Maritime Blues’, few would argue with giving the crown to Dieppe, NB’s Theresa Malenfant. Theresa has been performing to packed, appreciative audiences for over 30 years, serving up distinctively powerful soul, in the tradition of her heroes Janis Joplin and Etta James.
Her many accolades help to tell the story. In 1994 and 1995, Theresa won the East Coast Music Award for Best Female Artist. Her Little Girl Blue album, featuring songs originally recorded by Janis Joplin, was awarded nominations for Female Artist of the Year at The Maple Blues Awards in 1997 and 1998. This was followed by five years in Europe where her fan base grew to include strong followings in Belgium and Holland. Theresa’s career in the 2000’s has included more awards and nominations, and more well received recordings, including a ‘Best Of’ release and a live album. In 2015 she was awarded Lifetime Achievement at Maple Blues Awards and in 2019 she and Scott Medford won second place at the IBC International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee.
If you like hearing the blues coming from deep inside an artist’s soul, you will be captivated by the force and passion of a Theresa Malenfant performance.
