Groups 10+: $24

235 Queens Quay West
While taiko and the blues could not seem more different on the surface, both are musical genres strongly associated with rhythm. Nagata Shachu explores this commonality with renowned Toronto blues musician Ken Yoshioka.
Originally from Kamakura, Japan, Ken started his career as a harmonica player but later evolved into an acclaimed singer, fingerpicking guitarist and composer.
Juno award winner Julian Fauth is a piano player and singer whose style is based on the tradition of prewar barrelhouse blues and boogie woogie, with infusions of gospel and jazz. Witness boundaries between styles disappear in this rare collaborative concert.
