Music Runs Through It presents Rick Fines

Category: music 95

Rick Fines plays York County Cider on August 26.

Rick Fines returns to Fredericton this month for a show at York County Cider. This performance will be Fines’ second for Music Runs Through It following up a two night stint in August on 2016.

By now Fredericton blues fans should be well acquainted with Fines’ blues flavoured vocal and guitar work. Over the years Fines has performed many times at Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival and has conducted several workshops as part of the Festival’s Blues in the Schools program.

Fines’ storied career has seen him working in stellar collaboration and as a successful solo act.  First gaining attention as part of the legendary Jackson Delta, he’s since released four solo albums, another with his own Rick Fines trio, and a critically acclaimed disc with fellow troubadour, Suzie Vinnick.  Along the way he has racked up both awards and accolades.  His 15-year stint with Jackson Delta received both Juno and Handy award nominations.  His partnership with Suzie garnered a Maple Blues Songwriter of the Year Award.  On his own, he’s pulled in two more Maple Blues Awards (for Solo Act of the Year), as well as an astonishing eight other nominations.  While his songwriting chops won him a 2003 International Songwriting Competition, he’s equally proficient on guitar – having played for legendary blues piano player Pinetop Perkins, songstress Colleen Peterson, folk icon Penny Lang, and many others.
