The Legendary Downchild Blues Band is bringing their JUNO nominated album and a very special local guest to the Shenkman Arts Centre this weekend in Ottawa.

Touring in support of Something I’ve Done, nominated for the Blues Album of the Year at the 2018 JUNO Awards, Downchild will welcome fellow JUNO Award nominee, Tony D of Ottawa’s MonkeyJunk on stage for a 30-minute opening set.

For over 40 years, Downchild has been at the forefront of Canada’s blues music scene. From over 20 Maple Blues Awards to their storied history of providing the inspiration behind the Blues Brothers, the band’s latest release Something I’ve Done has been described as “not having a bad song on it.”

Downchild’s performance at Shenkman Arts Centre in the Ottawa suburb of Orleans comes on the heels of their 2017 performance at the Ottawa Jazz Festival.
