Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band
Tuesday June 18
Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Brian Blade is perhaps best known as Daniel Lanois’ left-hand man, his keeper of the groove, his rhythmic muse. But for 20 years, New Orleans’ Brian Blade & the Fellowship Band has been one of music’s most reflective and enigmatic ensembles, gracefully, subtly moving between dark and light to provide a balm for the soul. Brian has also been a frequent collaborator and drummer with co-headliner Joshua Redman, including for their recent joint project Still Dreaming.
Formed in 1997, Brian Blade & the Fellowship Band marked their 20th anniversary in 2017 with the release of their sublime fifth album, Body and Shadow.
