"A Portrait of Blues In Canada" hard cover book

July 25, 2013

A Portrait Of Blues In Canada, by Randy MacNeil and Francine Aubrey is the first publication containing photographs from Randy MacNeil's body of work which also includes many international acts as well. Randy teamed up with Francine Aubrey (Laroche), a singer-songwriter from Ottawa, Ontario to produce this extraordinary book.

This beautiful 260 page, hard cover coffee table book captures the history of our Canadian blues story through the testimony of some of our Canadian blues music heroes, laymen and women who drive this blues culture and support it. It is a 'must have' for all music lovers. All the photographs have been shot with black and white film, over the course of Randy's thirty year career documenting the music scene here in Canada. This book is the first of its kind, informative and has a very tasteful design. The photography resembles something from Time Life magazine and it's 100% Canadian! Holger Petersen from CBC said, "This is an important part of Canadian Blues History" and many other music industry icons are raving about it.
