THE JOHN CARROLL SHOW
For the past ten years, the wonderful John Carroll, Ottawa's best known original folk and country blues man, has packed the infamous Chateau Lafayette every Wednesday night. John Carroll's music fits comfortably into a variety of genres and time-periods that are inspired heavily by traditional blues and country folk, featuring key elements of slide guitar and finger-style guitar playing. Of John's recent album (2012), Canada's premier folk/roots/world music mag, PENGUIN EGGS, stated that "If Hades had a telephone line to Earth, a call from down there would sound like John Carroll's voice on EVERYBODY SMOKES IN HELL."
Early show starts @ 8pm | Late show @ 10pm | Always FREE @ 42 York ST.
