Arts Commons Presents:
The Duke Robillard Acoustic Trio

CALGARY – The one and only Duke Robillard is a musician of startling musical versatility and vocabulary, bringing his talent and signature sound to swing standards, ballads, rockabilly hits, and Chicago gutbucket blues.

Not to be taken lightly, Robillard has received two GRAMMY nominations and performed alongside Bob Dylan, Jimmy Witherspoon, and Tom Waits, just to name a few.

“Fabled troubadour Duke Robillard distills the sweet waters of the music rooted primarily from the time of the beginning of recorded music through the 1940s to offer us great examples of why his artistry is so highly regarded.” - Blues Blast Magazine

In a one of a kind opportunity, Duke Robillard comes to Calgary with his acoustic trio, performing acoustic takes on songs spanning his illustrious 50 year career in blues, including several selections from The Acoustic Blues & Roots of Duke Robillard, which won the 2016 Blues Music Awards Acoustic Blues Album of the Year.
