Colin James brings Blue Highways to Saskatoon


Canadian blues artist Colin James returns to Saskatoon with Blue Highways, Feb. 26. Blue Highways pays tribute to some of the singer-guitarist’s long time blues idols including Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Freddie King, Jr. Wells and Buddy Guy, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and William Bell to name a few.

In the spring of 2015 Colin wrapped up his Hearts on Fire tour. After a couple of months of straight touring, Colin was loving playing with the band and really happy with the sound they had created on stage. What better time to make a record? Especially the record Colin had been itching to make for years – a collection of some of his favourite blues tracks. In less than a week Colin and his touring band went into The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver and in just two days, Blue Highways was born.

Colin James performs at TCU Place, Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets available at
