Dartmouth’s Jesse Patrick, performing as a duo, along with opener Jester J., will make his Carleton début on Thursday, August 20th. The guys will take the stage at 8 PM and this night, admission will be FREE. This is cool stuff, what have you got to lose?
Fusing classic blues and Motown with new age hip hop and rock, Jesse Patrick brings high energy to any stage acoustic, or with his high voltage backing band.
Jester J. Brown is a local Instrumental Guitarist, Blues singer, songwriter and composer based in Nova Scotia. He has hit the stage with many musical acts, including performing as a lead guitar player and backup vocals for Truro’s Own “Even Keel” , and touring the Maritime Provinces for many years with “Da’Rock”.
Being from a musical family, J was pretty much born with a guitar in his hands. He started playing a full size acoustic guitar at the age of 5 but his arms were too small to reach around the guitar, so he laid it down across his lap to play. By age 7 he was performing on stage and by 10 he was playing lead guitar.
An extremely versatile guitar player, he can perform just about any genre but the Jester has a very unique style and sound of his own. As a fingerstyle guitarist, he was inspired by the late great Chet Atkins CGP and the beautiful tones that Tommy Emmanuel CGP makes from his strings. However there is only one guitar influence truly recognizable in almost every song the Jester performs – It’s the distinctive style of blues legend Mr. Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Throughout the years, J. Brown has expanded from a lead guitar player to a singer songwriter. Once he gets loosened up a bit, you just might hear him singing the blues.
If you have a love for the sounds of the acoustic guitar, then Jester J. Brown is a show you won’t want to miss. He will take you back to the 60’s and 70’s with music from BB King to Buddy Guy to guys like John Mayer keeping the blues alive throughout the next millennium.
Truly an acoustic guitar experience
