Dan Shinnan was a volunteer at the Edmonton Blues Festival for a few years and dreamed of getting on that big stage. The time is now; after being a judge at the finals of the Memphis Bound competition to select acts representing Northern Alberta at the 2017 International Blues Challenge, festival producer Cam Hayden was knocked out by the band’s development, professionalism, and talent…they had to be here, and what could be better than to have both IBC contestants on the stage, back to back, Sunday August 27!
