Hornby Island Blues Workshop



Angel Forrest and Denis Coulombe

Hornby Blues continues to enrich our Workshop with Quebec Blues artists. There are nine million people in this country who speak French, so it’s likely that about million of them can sing the Blues in French. And though we don’t offer instruction in French, with Angel Forrest and Denis Coulombe back in camp, we could!

Angel and Denis return in 2020 in the capacity of vocalists and arrangers where they will once again teach the intricacies in the art of finding your comfort zone in delivering lyrics, and acquiring the elements of phrasing and the dynamics of voice in order to enhance vocal performance. Angel is a multi-year winner of Maple Blues Female Vocalist of the Year and is the perennial reigning queen of Quebec Blues both which say a lot about the trajectory of this diva. Denis comes to us this year in his capacity of a singer, and songwriter and brings a wealth of experience and talent as a musical arranger.

With a career span of over 30 years and a dozen albums, their body of work provides the springboard to their teaching. It is going to be valuable set of classes for anyone who wants to develop their voice and learn to sing with confidence for an audience. Next May we are really excited to have Angel and Denis return as they are ‘beaux musiciens ‘who bring elegance and veracity to our 2020 Blues Workshop.
