Donovan Thorimbert and Jesse Ens
Wednesday May 16, 2018  6pm - 8pm (2 Hours )

Join us for an evening of country-blues music from the deep south!

Donovan Thorimbert is a Montreal-based folk and roots entertainer. His five-string clawhammer banjo playing and traditional vocals take audiences back to the old times, when there were no cell phones to check and music was the entertainment of the day. Drawing on diverse old time genres, Donovan takes his audiences on a tour through the country and blues of the 1920s and 30s, with regular nods to the work of Mississippi John Hurt.

In 2017, Donovan organized a concert paying homage to the life and work of Mississippi John Hurt and Montrealers went wild for it. Coming off the success of the event, he's set his sights on recording an album featuring his favourite country-blues interpretations, including songs from John Hurt, Elizabeth Cotton, Blind Blake and Dock Boggs. The album titled 'Can't Justify the Blues', will be available in early 2019.

Donovan will be performing at folk festivals and cafes all across Eastern Canada and Newfoundland this May. His melodious, finger-picked accompaniment combined with a unique flare for storytelling make Donovan an act that delights and entertains audiences of all ages. He's not to be missed!
