      Host: Ed Fowler - Blues in the School Program Director
        The Loyal Blues Fellowship is pleased to announce that Rick Fines will be performing a solo House concert on the 29th of November.  Rick's classic blues guitar picking only hints at the authenticity that he brings to his music.  Have a listen to any of Rick’s recording, and what you hear is the quintessential blues/folk experience – the fundamental man and guitar union.  There is just something so bred-in-the-bone intimate that this veteran of the folk and blues circuits in North America creates.  To say Rick loves what he does might be an understatement.  For decades his life has been music. He has earned eight Maple Blues Award nominations and twice won the Acoustic Act of the Year.

      May 11 2012 - Kevin Donoghue

      It is with sadness and fond memories that the Loyal Blues Fellowship acknowledges the passing of Kevin Donoghue.  Kevin was a founding member of the Loyal Blues Fellowship’s board of directors and a key advisor with the television production of the End of Winter Blues festivals until he suffered a stroke in Fall 2007.
       If there was anything that Kevin loved as much as television production, it probably was playing drums which he did even after his stroke.

       
          This photograph is from the 2008 End of Winter Blues festival where Kevin performed with the Loyal Blues Band with the use of one hand and one foot. His beat went on in spite of his physical limitations and no doubt will continue long after his passing.
       

         Saturday, May 5th:  We would like to thank Dave, all the musicians, volunteers
         and the thirsty crowd at the Church Key Spring Revival for helping support and
         raise awareness for Blues in the Schools.
