Country and blues will be on the agenda when Darren Johnson and Jamie Woodfin perform Friday at The Hub in Red Deer.
Johnson has long been a fixture on the Canadian blues scene. His throw-back musical style has been described as a mixture of Tom Waits, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Nelson and Leon Redbone.
The Okotoks singer has recorded four albums that have sold internationally, and has worked with Amos Garrett, Tim Williams, Jim Byrnes and The Blind Boys of Alabama.
Woodfin has been writing song-stories on the theme of “truth and longing” that are as straight ahead as he is.
The Ponoka native now lives in Red Deer and sings in the country genre.
Tickets to the 7 p.m. concert at The Hub on Ross (4936 Ross St.) are $15 a person or $30 for families with children 12 and under.
