Tim Swaddling & his Band will open for the Toronto based blues band The Blackburn Bros in a special show presented by Canada South Blues Society on Friday, Feburary 3rd, 2023. This will be the first full band show Tim has performed since the release of Manifests, the debut feature length album that is now available on streaming services at at local record shops.
Blackburn is a true family band with brothers Duane, Brooke, Cory and Robert participating. Their deep roots in music came about naturally with their father, Bobby Dean Blackburn, a well known figure in the Toronto R&B Scene helping plant an appreciation of music while growing up. They are Juno nominees and multiple Maple Blues award winners and nominees throughout their careers. Their signature sound blends a mix of Blues, R&B, Funk and Soul.
This show is in appreciation of Black History Month honouring Essex County's own Ms. Elise Harding-Davis, former curator of the Amherstburg Freedom Museum and a 2022 recipient of the Order of Ontario.
