Rick Keene Music Scene – Jazz Festival Preview;Buddy Guy


Legendary is an understatement.

James St Laurent Photography

Buddy Guy is the last Blues guy. Last meaning one of very few who learned from the masters firsthand. Crafting his skills from the likes of B.B. King, T Bone Walker, Junior Wells, Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters. Live and in person. Live in studio.

Buddy will be performing tonight as part of a triple bill with Charlie Musslewhite, Steve Hill and Matt Andersen at Place de Arts as part of The Montreal Jazz Festival.

Please listen below to my interview with Buddy from a couple of years ago.

Rick Keene Music Scene – Jazz Festival Preview; Melissa Etheridge

What is there to be said about Melissa Etheridge that has not been said before?


Melissa is a poster woman for so many causes and inspirational platforms; to list them here would be unfair to the ones we don’t know about.

A woman of song and a woman with song. A marriage profound in it’s roots and very apparent in her latest album; ‘Memphis Rock and Soul’.

Please listen below  to music royalty as she talks about many things including the last time she shared the stage with Joss Stone. 

Joss and Melissa will be on a double bill on July 5th at the Montreal Jazz Festival. 

Melissa? What’s up?

Rick Keene Music Scene – Jazz Festival Preview; Whitehorse


It ain’t easy being green. It ain’t easy being a Whitehorse in what can sometimes be – a muddy puddle. 

Melissa and Luke have conquered the beginnings of a music career. Their outfit – Whitehorse, have gained critical success in a few short years. Stagnation can be anyone’s enemy, especially artists. The need to create and be fresh – essential to a lifespan in the arts.

Please listen below to my chat with Luke Doucet as he talks about all the above and an unlikely ( likely?) inspiration on the new album; ‘ Panther in the Dollhouse’ due out July 7th.

Luke? What’s up?



Whitehorse are performing July 6th at Metropolis as part of The Jazz Festival !
