Bluesman Jim Byrnes plays the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney on Nov. 29.

Sidney will be a little more blue next weekend as legendary blues musician Jim Byrnes takes the stage at the Mary Winspear Centre Friday, Nov. 29.

Byrnes’ album That River won the Juno for Best Blues/Gospel Album (1996), as well as the album House of Refuge which won the Juno for Blues Album of the Year (2007) and Everywhere West which won the Juno for Blues Album of the Year (2011).

Byrnes also won the Canadian Folk Music Awards Contemporary Singer of the Year award twice, in 2006 and 2009.

The blues musician was last in Sidney a year ago with special guest Babe Gurr and will once again welcome her to share the stage with him in the Charlie White Theatre at the Winspear Centre.

Gurr, a roots/rock singer-songwriter, has been turning heads for years with a blend of roots, blues, world and pop music which has been compared to the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, John Hiatt and Sheryl Crow.

The show takes place Friday, Nov. 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the Charlie White Theatre. Tickets are $37.50 and are available through the Mary Winspear box office at 250-656-0275 or online at www.marywinspear.ca.
