As the great Canadian Holger Peterson once said: “I have been a fan of Brandon’s music since his first recordings with The Twisters. I believe he is one of Canada’s most talented roots and blues artists today.” Now that is a source quote worth framing. And, once again Holger is not alone for in the Maple Blues Awards Brandon was nominated for song writing of the year, blues act of the year, producer of the year, guitar player of the year, and album of the year. But that is not the only reason he is back in our Workshop.
For this 25th Blues Workshop we have once again invited Brandon Isaak back to instruct in his understanding and passion for blues music. Brandon’s inventiveness as a player, song writer and singer are couched in real entertainment and real Blues. Brandon though remains pretty much an everyday guy, humble in his confidence and interested in other people’s musical journeys. Guitarists who are looking for the kind of instructions that can move their skills as traditional blues players forward or wanting to find a platform from which much of the of the technical artistry is broken down in uncomplicated ways, will find Brandon Isaak accommodating. He is a player who has an affinity for the rawness and spontaneity of the blues and he carries this into his instruction. Book a class and find out what many know that Brandon Isaak is a natural teacher whose enthusiasm at our Workshops is always contagious.
