For the Townsman

Regina-born Colin James has come a long way since his self-titled debut album in 1988. Since that time he has amassed numerous awards and a string of instantly identifiable hits which has propelled James to the icon status category in Canada.

Songs like “Man’s Gotta be a Stone,” “I Need You Bad,” “I’m Losing You,” “Let’s Shout,” “Into the Mystic,” “Lost Again,” “Voodoo Thing,” “Keep on Loving Me Baby,”  “Cadillac Baby,” “Breakin’ up the House” and many more have helped James secure a following of fans in North America that would be the envy of many an artist.

He has also won six Juno awards, 17 Maple Blues Awards, and several of his albums have reached Gold and Platinum status.

The musical genres which James so nicely spans, include blues, rock, R n’ B, jump blues, swing revival and blues-rock.

This tour is for fans — Colin James like you have never seen or heard him before.

“Colin James: Up Close and Personal — the Acoustic Tour,” where James will perform his hits and blues standards in an intimate acoustic setting featuring incredible guitar chops, and great vocals, with special guest, master guitarist Chris Caddell.

Kootenay Concert Connection President and General Manager  F.J. Hurtak said, ” We had this show in Nelson and many other areas in 2013 and I have been asked by many residents of the East Kootenay, particularly in Cranbrook and Kimberley, to bring this show to the Key City Theatre.

“I am very pleased to say we are going to be able to do that on April 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets for the 2013 tour sold out pretty quickly in most other venues, so I would urge people to buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment. Due to routing constraints there will be only one show.”

Tickets for Colin James: Up Close and Personal, will go on sale at the Key City Theatre  Box office in Cranbrook on Friday, January 23, or by phone at 250-426-7006 or online at www.keycitytheatre.com. All seats are reserved and priced at $45 inc. gst(sc extra)   This show is presented by the Kootenay Concert Connection in association with The Drive 102.9 and the Daily Townsman.
