LEE OSKAR

Lee Oskar is a globally renowned harmonica player, composer, producer, and harmonica manufacturer, well-known for his iconic role as a founding member and lead harmonica player for the pioneer funk/jazz band that composed and recorded such mega-hits as “Low Rider,” “Spill the Wine,” “Cisco Kid,” “Slippin’ into Darkness,” “The World is a Ghetto” and many more. Lee Oskar and his original band mates continue today as the LowRider Band, and Lee also performs with other outstanding musicians, as Lee Oskar & Friends.

MICHAEL PICKETT
Michael Pickett is a world class roots artist winning multiple awards and two JUNO nominations; an international troubadour with a social conscience. He has the uncanny ability to create and perform original material that sounds completely unique yet hauntingly familiar taking his audiences to another world and time.

DAVID ROTUNDO
Toronto blues harpist David Rotundo heard James Cotton perform at the El Mocambo in 1991. “He blew one note on the harmonica that hypnotized me…” The next day, Rotundo went out and bought a harmonica. “…and I’ve been playing the blues ever since.”

LARRY KURTZ
Larry Kurtz is a soulful, bluesy, singer, songwriter and harmonica player. He started out singing in church as a young boy, and began playing harmonica at the age of 15, falling in love with the sound after hearing Little Walter on the radio. He is the Founder & Artistic Director of the Orangeville Blues & Jazz Festival and was named Blues Booster Of The Year at the 2015 Maple Blues Awards.
