RAY BONNEVILLE  We love Ray, and it’s been too long since he has come to play and not just take advantage of our cheap lodging as he passes through.

A lot of heavy praise for Ray hereTicket link follows bio.

An acclaimed raconteur, Ray strips his bluesy Americana down to its essentials and steeps it in the humid grooves of the South, creating a compelling poetry of hard living and deep feeling. 

Jim Withers (Montreal Gazette) describes his sound as “folk-roots gumbo… a languid Mississippi Delta groove, seasoned with smooth, weathered vocals and a propulsive harmonica wheeze.” Whether performing solo or fronting a band, playing electric or acoustic guitar, Bonneville allows space between notes that adds potency to every chord, lick, and lyric. Thom Jurek (Allmusic.com) remarks, “With darkness and light fighting for dominance… he’s stripped away every musical excess to let the songs speak for themselves.” 

Often called a “song and groove man,” Bonneville has lived the life of the itinerant artist. To learn more about that, come to the show or read further on his website.
