BLUES WITH A WHOLE LOT OF SOUL! Havelock Stone Hall Sessions is pleased and proud to present Al Lerman LIVE in Concert as the fifth concert in our 2023 Season.

Celebrated multi-instrumentalist bluesman Al Lerman is considered among the top harmonica players in the country. His prowess on the harmonica has earned him eleven Maple Blues Award nominations, while his engaging and dry wit has earned him a loyal following, building a solid career touring as an acoustic solo act. Al was founder and leader of the much-loved band Fathead, garnering two JUNO Awards.

Al has a legacy of songs that few Canadian Blues artists can match. With a great knowledge of the old blues tradition on both harmonica and guitar, he brings that sensibility to songs that are written about his own contemporary life and times. His 2016 CD Slow Burn made the esteemed world-wide list of Top 100 Blues Albums. That same year he also garnered a Maple Blues Award nomination for Acoustic Act Of The Year. His newest album Northern Bayou was released in 2019 to rave reviews

Tickets online at just $20 before the day of the show; at the door $30 cash only.

The Sessions were founded in 2019 by area singer-songwriters Ron Marshall and Randy Stewart. The aim was simply to create an intimate listening environment and give some well-deserved exposure to local area musicians. That focus is as strong as ever. Original music is a large part of the Sessions, but great music in an attentive listening atmosphere makes the Sessions stand out.

Another side benefit of the Sessions is continuing. Direct and indirect contributions to local Havelock causes have been made from the Sessions, including contributions to the Havelock Public School music program. Yet another way for local music fans to support their community.

Don’t miss out all you renowned Havelock area music fans- get it in your calendar now. While you’re at it, make a note that the Sessions will happen on the fourth Sunday of each month at 2:00 p.m. at the Stone Hall, 6th Line and Highway 7.
