Gar­rett Ma­son at the Trail­side for two nights

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY / ENTERTAINMENT -

Gar­rett Ma­son bring his sig­na­ture brand of blues to the Trail­side Mu­sic Cafe’ & Inn, Mount Stew­art, tonight and to­mor­row night.

Ma­son, a true blues­man at heart, was raised in Truro, N.S., by his mother, Pam, and father, vet­eran Cana­dian Blues­man Dutchie Ma­son.

His quest to be­come a blues mu­si­cian started at an early age as he was sur­rounded by blues mu­sic. His favourite tapes at three years old were Canned Heat and Buddy Rich. What re­ally sealed the deal for him to be­come a blues gui­tarist came af­ter watch­ing a video of Ste­vie Ray Vaughn “Live At the El Mo­cambo”.

“Gar­rett puts on one of the best blues shows around, so if you’re even slightly a fan of the blues you should check this out,” says owner Pat Deighan.

“We had him play in June, and the place was hop­ping. He’s the real deal folks.”

Tick­ets are avail­able at www. trail­side.ca, Back Al­ley Mu­sic or 902-394-3626. Doors and the kitchen open at 6:30 p.m. with mu­sic at 8 p.m.
