RICK HALISHEFF Outdoor House Concert



Sat, Jul 24th, 2021


7:30 pm to 00:00:01


Get ready for a howling good time, as Rick Halisheff (aka Poppa Dawg) comes to wail for your delight at the Lantern Folk Music Society. Rick is a Blues man with energy and enthusiasm that runs deep.

Rick is a Blues man with energy and enthusiasm that runs deep. He has worked and shared the stage with many Blues luminaries and Juno Award winners including Tony Coleman (B.B. King), Sonny Rhodes, Fathead and Donnie Walsh (Mr. Downchild), Jeff Healey, Jim Byrnes, Powder Blues Band, Sherman Doucette, and many more. He has the stage experience and presence of a true journeyman.
“Rick Halisheff, a bear of a man with the surest hands since Roy Buchanan grabbed an amplified six-string and a voice that can evoke a myriad of emotions,” said Mike D’Amour, Calgary Sun.
Armed with a versatility rarely seen, hardcore blues fans will love Rick’s ability to channel the energy and sound that has echoes of Albert King and Howlin’ Wolf. He can bring the slinky grooves reminiscent of Dr. John and the hard-hitting edge of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Guitar fanatics will be thrilled as Rick delivers each song as if he is living and breathing it from the inside out.
“Great singing, tones, playing, songs and a refreshing variety of approaches,” said Tom Hyslop, Blues Revue Magazine.
