Calgary Midwinter Bluesfest's

Guitar Trailblazer

starring slide guitar legend Ellen Mcllwaine

Friday March 1, 7:00 PM | Gasoline Alley Museum

Born in Nashville and living in Japan from the age of two as part of an international community, Ellen grew up listening to a combination of New Orleans R & B, European Classical, Grand Ole Opry, Japanese Shamisen, Indian Sitar and much more of what is now called "World Music.”

Ellen’s high energy Rhythm & Blues, along with Middle Eastern laments, Indian, Pakistani & West African influences and a capella gospel numbers all drive her virtuosic slide guitar and vocal acrobatics to make for a dynamic show. Anecdotes and stories from her forty-some years in the business add warmth and humour to her unforgettable performances.

Ellen was honoured as the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2019 Maple Blues Awards.
