Bebe BuckSkin celebrates the launch of “Asiskiy,” her sophomore EP, with blues guitar legend Ellen Mcillwaine and J.J. Heyblom at the King Eddy.
About Bebe Buckskin:
Born and raised an “Indigenous Cowgirl” in the great muskeg of Northern Alberta, Bebe Buckskin; a Cree/Metis artist, is the embodiment of Northern grit and soul. Classic blues – rock, swamp – soul is the term that best describes the anchor of her music, with infusions that skim upon outlaw country, folk and R&B. This ex-rodeo queen swamp woman is unafraid to bare her raw intensity on stage, making for a riveting and authentic performance. Velvety robust vocals paired with a soulfully dynamic band, floats the listener away on a journey through soundscapes of nostalgic inspirations. Deep dense decadence for the senses
About Ellen McIlwaine:
Born in Nashville, living in Japan from the age of two as part of an International Community, this slide guitar legend grew up listening to a combination of New Orleans R & B, European Classical, Grand Ole Opry, Japanese Shamisen, Indian Citar, and much more of what is now called “World Music”.
Her high energy Rhythm & Blues, along with Middle Eastern laments, Indian, Pakistani & West African influences and a capella Gospel numbers all drive her amazing Slide Guitar and Vocal Acrobatics to make for a dynamic show.
About J.J. Heyblom:
J.J. Heyblom (Jesse John Heyblom) is a dynamic and expressive musician who currently resides in Airdrie, Alberta.
