PCL Blues 


It’s music from the soul, in the intimate setting you love, with some of the best voices in blues today. 

New subscriptions and single tickets are now on sale! Call Arts Commons Box Office at 403-294-9494 to secure your spot to an incredible line-up of blues shows.

Fresh off his 2017 GRAMMY nominated album release BloodlineKenny Neal opens our 2017-18 blues season, followed by Canadian favourite Harpdog Brown & the Travelin' Blues Show featuring Sugar Brown. Next up, we trade soulful harmonica and swagger for the rich, versatile voice of Dawn Tyler Watson. It wouldn’t be a blues season without some good old Mississippi blues, and we’re happy to welcome the Mississippi blues child Mr. Sipp, a man born to play the blues. Finally, settle in for an evening of music, laughter, and stories with Roy Book Binder, and bring your blues season to a close with the trailblazing Toronzo Cannon.

Arts Commons is proud to have supported Blues music for the past 19 years. PCL Blues presents international and Canadian artists to eager Calgary fans in both the intimate atmosphere of the Engineered Air Theatre and the Georgian-style, 400-seat Martha Cohen Theatre.
