The St. Clair College Capitol Theatre is pleased to announce the line-up for the 3rd Annual Bluesfest. Presented this year in mid-winter, Blue Valentine features Tom Lockwood and friends in the first act and one of the best blues harmonica players in the World, Carlos del Junco in the second act.

Carlos is one of those players whose music is so advanced that when it comes to awards, it's either retire the category or rephrase the question to "Best Harmonica Player Not Named Carlos". This includes two Gold Medals from the Hohner World Harmonica Championship in Trossingen, Germany, as well as multiple national awards in Canada.

To say he plays the harmonica is like saying "Jimi Hendrix plays guitar". He blows the blues harp through a prism -- suddenly it seems he's holding every color in the musical rainbow right there in his hands.

Find out more about Carlos and his music at www.carlosdeljunco.com or better yet, come and see him perform on February 14.

As in the past, Tom Lockwood has played the important artistic role in the selection of the artists for the night. But he is also performing with his band and February 14 is no exception.

Tom will debut his new CD – a blues release with sidesteps into jazz and roots music. Around his core group of players, there will be some special guests to present the music – with many new compositions played for the first time. Visit www.tomlockwoodguitar.ca to find out more about Tom’s music.

Blue Valentine is on sale now. Tickets are $30 plus handling fee and can be purchased at the Box Office by calling 519-354-8338 or online at www.stclaircollegecapitoltheatre.com.
