(St. John’s, Tuesday, January 29th, 2013) – Newfoundland’s Damian Follett and Maritimes Andy Brown join The Blind Boys Of Alabama on their Atlantic Canadian tour, coming up February 8th to the 12th.
Damian is the “Springsteen of Newfoundland,” known for his 4 hour non-stop solo sets in various venues throughout the province. While we’ve had to rein him in to 35 minutes for his special guest appearance with The Blind Boys of Alabama in Newfoundland on February 8th, and music fans can expect a great showcase from this talented Newfoundland singer /songwriter” – David Carver.
Maritime Folk Rocker Andy Brown has a style all his own, taking you on a lyrical journey that transcends a realm torn between love, happiness, and sorrow. “Andy carries the special guest torch for the Halifax Feb 9th, Moncton February 11th and Saint John February 12th Blind Boys of Alabama dates.” – David Carver.
