Jimmy Bowskill and The Barnburners
Saturday, May 14, 2016
Jimmy Bowskill has been impressing his musical elders for a full decade now. At age 11, he attracted the attention of late great bluesman Jeff Healey by busking outside his Toronto club. Healey and the local blues community quickly sensed Bowskill’s passion and potential, helping him record his 2003 debut album, the fittingly named Old Soul. The following year, Jimmy’s second album, Soap Bars & Dog Ears, was nominated for a Juno Award (Canada’s Grammy equivalent), making him the youngest ever Juno nominee.
