Ray Bonneville in Concert
As a native French speaker from Canada, it’s only natural that Ray Bonneville would love New Orleans. The Juno winning singer-songwriter will bring his blues-influenced New Orleans-style groove to Fiddlers Crossing Saturday, August 26, at 7 p.m.
Bonneville's music was heavily influenced by his time spent in New Orleans during the 1980s and later. It is often said that the sound of New Orleans is that of rhythm -- the rhythms of a brassy jazz band, the mighty Mississippi River, the Delta bluesmen, and of slowness. Bonneville soaked up the prevalent take-your-time attitude that ran through the music being played in New Orleans.
"There's something about the heat and humidity that makes people slow down," he says. "New Orleans is where I learned to take my time, to allow space between the notes so the songs could truly groove."
That groove is the core of Bonneville's sound. He backs his weathered voice with a highly percussive guitar style, dramatic harmonica lines, and a foot that keeps a steady beat.
To learn more about Ray Bonneville and hear samples of his songs, go to fiddlerscrossing.com and raybonneville.com.
Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 East F Street at Robinson Street, in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased next door at Mountain Music, Tehachapi Treasure Trove, Tehachapi Furniture in Old Town, Lucky’s Barbershop, online at Fiddlerscrossing.com or with a credit card by calling 661-823-9994. Tickets to the concert are $20, and as always, coffee and goodies are included. The concert begins at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30p.m.
