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 and the Fellowship 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 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.
