Here's an excerpt from Ricks Bio:
Rick Fines is a veteran of the folk and blues circuits in North America. He is an engaging storyteller and songwriter. He won the MapleBlues Award for Songwriter of the Year, Acoustic Act Of The Year (twice), and has received eight additional nominations. His song “Riley Wants His Life Back” won first place in the blues category of 2003 International Songwriting Competition, with B.B. King one of the judges! His work with Jackson Delta (for 15 years) brought nominations from both the Juno and the Handy Awards. He has played for legendary blues piano player Pinetop Perkins, songstress Colleen Peterson, folk icon Penny Lang and many others. He toured from Newfoundland to B.C. to the Arctic last year alone, bringing his understanding of blues, finger-style and bottleneck guitar.

I'll always remember he and the Jackson Delta as the first band I went to see in my first year of university at Trent in Peterborough. It was a blast! He's an excellent all round entertainer, musician, story teller, singer, and I hope you will come check it out and support live music on Cortes. Mary Clare
