Chatham is about to feel the burn – Blackburn, that is.
The band Blackburn is set to play the KBD Hall in Chatham on Feb. 4, bringing a legacy of family talent.
Blackburn is Toronto’s first family of blues, soul and funk. It is a band of brothers with the core of the band consisting of Brooke, Duane and Cory Blackburn.
Their music is rich in the traditions of the blues, but is infused with R&B, soul and funk.
Blackburn brings it all together with conscious lyrics to create a smooth and soulful groove.
The sons of legendary R&B performer Dean Blackburn, they have continued in the tradition of their father. It’s in their DNA.
They bring their funk/soul/blues to festivals and fans across Canada and the U.S. Blackburn arrives with respect and accolades within the music industry as well. The band received the Maple Blues Award for Best New Band in 2010, and a Juno nomination for Blues Album of the Year in 2016.
Duane Blackburn received a Maple Blues Award nomination for Keyboard/Piano Players of the year in 2019 and in 2020.
Cory Blackburn earned a Maple Blues Award nomination for Drummer of the Year in 2020.
