West Kootenay blues duo Holly and Jon play St. Saviour's Pro-Cathedral this Monday.

Selkirk Pro-Musica presents: Holly and Jon

The pair is making waves on the international blues scene, garnering rave reviews overseas and airplay in international markets.

Selkirk Pro-Musica presents its second concert of the season, featuring a cd release concert by West Kootenay blues duo, Holly and Jon. The pair is making waves on the international blues scene, garnering rave reviews overseas and airplay in international markets.

Entitled 1929, the new album has been reviewed in magazines such as Blues In Britain, which called the album “a delight. Such is the quality of the self-penned originals that you could be forgiven for thinking that fine old classics had been unearthed.”

Holger Peterson, of CBC’s Saturday Night Blues fame and the head of Stony Plain Records, has aired it on his Natch’l Blues show — the longest running Canadian blues program; and Tony King of CKUA radio in Edmonton called it, “A rich tapestry of Canadian roots music.”

Holly Hyatt has been performing since she was a child and started playing bass and singing around the age of 10. She has played on shows with artists such as Carlos Del Junco, Jim Byrnes, Roy Forbes, Ruthie Foster, Jeff Healey and Colin James.

Jon Burden got his start at a young age in England. He picked up the guitar at age 17, started playing professionally a few years later and made a living playing music in Calgary and Edmonton for a number of years.

Join Holly Hyatt on vocals and bass and Jon Burden on slide guitar, acoustic guitar and vocals for an evening of tasteful, acoustic blues on Monday, October 21 at St. Saviour’s  Pro-Cathedral. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets, $15 for adults and $12 for students, are available at Otter Books and at the door.
