Toronto’s Winterfolk VIII festival – which runs from February 12 -15, 2010, will present two fun-packed nights of music as a teaser to the upcoming free, all-ages, mid-winter, weatherproof urban roots and blues festival.
The events will showcase some of the finest musicians performing at the festival this year, including veteran “wows a crowd” Danny Marks. He’s JAZZ.FM91's weekly Bluz.fm radio show host and has also played with just about every VIP in the blues business, such as, internationally known Juno award-winning Edward Bear early in his career, Rick James' band and as a session sideman for Ronnie Hawkins, Rita Coolidge, Bo Diddley, Stephen Stills and others. He was also the winner of the Toronto Blues Society's Blues With A Feeling Award for lifetime achievement in 2007. With two albums to date, True and Guitarchaeology, Marks is set to release a third album in the spring called Friend in the Blues, a personal take on blues music.
