Blues, roots and rock collide in a memorable journey with this dynamic duo through the heart and soul of Americana.

Known as the “Motorhead of Rockabilly” in Europe, Paul Pigat is a very versatile musician who is influenced by a wide-range of music, and performs in several bands to capture the essence of each genre. He amps it up in hot-rod rockabilly band Cousin Harley, winds down with mainly acoustic country blues and roots band Boxcar Campfire, and expresses his vintage jazz and bebop stylings in the Paul Pigat Trio. His band, called Cousin Harley, also doubles as Pigat’s onstage alter ego, which is used to describe the wild persona he embodies during his live performances.

 

Meet Tim Williams, a seasoned blues and roots artist whose journey began in the coffee houses of Southern California. With a career spanning over five decades, Tim's musical prowess caught the attention of Epic Records in 1968, leading to his first LP, "Blues Full Circle." Inspired by diverse genres from country to Hawaiian music, Tim honed his skills as a multi-instrumentalist, mastering the dobro, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica. His move to Canada in the early 1970s coincided with a burgeoning folk scene and a demand for Canadian content in recording studios. Opening for legends like Taj Mahal and Albert Collins, Tim gained a loyal following and recorded several albums before briefly leaving the music industry to work as a horse wrangler. His return to performing in 1988 at the Edmonton Folk Festival marked a new chapter in his career, leading to numerous tours, recordings, and collaborations. With multiple JUNO-nominated projects and over a dozen solo albums, Tim continues to captivate audiences with his soulful performances and versatile musicianship.
