For the first time in 20 years, the Harrison Festival Society has had to cancel a show due to low ticket sales.
Sandy Bone and the Breakdown were set to play Memorial Hall on Saturday night. However, the society had to make the decision to cancel. Now, they are focusing on promoting the next show, which will be Juno winner Murray Porter on October 20.
Porter is a highly-regarded boogie woogie and blue pianist and band leader, and won the 2012 Juno for his CD Songs Lived and Life Played.
Watch for an more in-depth interview with Porter in next week’s Observer.
In the meantime, check out his music by searching Murray Porter on You Tube, or visit the Harrison Festival Society online.
