"Full of sophisticated musicianship and striking lyricism" that is what Living Blues Magazine has to say about Cécile Doo-Kingué. Having attended our Workshop for a number of years we would like to add that if there ever was a moment when you had a desire to learn where your place in Blues and Roots music may be, this Workshop in 2020 just might be it. Cécile is a huge student draw and comes with an encouraging attitude that not only builds student confidence but also provides a springboard for musical growth.

Cécile Doo-Kingué is considered one of Canada’s most electrifying and versatile guitarists, she has shared a stage and/or recorded with host of amazing roots and blues players and been consistently award- nominated. As for her teaching style, Cécile tells us she believes in sustainability. The idea isn’t to tell students what to express but rather show them the key to unlocking their own creativity by providing the skill counsel and confidence they need to build their musicianship.
