FREE SHOW: Joël Fafard

  • April 26, 2023
    7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Saskatchewan-born, now West Coast-based, acoustic roots and blues award-winning guitarist Joël Fafard returns to The Carleton for the first time in many, many moons on Wednesday, April 26th. Show time is 7 PM and since we believe in this artist, we’ve decided to make this a FREE show, but we suggest you bring some cash for the tip bucket. If you dig finger-picking and slide guitar, Joël’s your man. Trust us…

As he closes in on 20 years as a professional musician, Joël Fafard has traveled down several distinct paths: folk singer-songwriter, roots rocker, acoustic instrumentalist and now interpreter of Southern roots and blues. But regardless of which direction he goes in, his fans seem happy to follow, because Fafard has a few key attributes that remain constant. First, he is one of Canada’s most tasteful acoustic guitarists and one of the funniest and most personable entertainers on the circuit today. He is also an artist so brimming with authenticity that he’s not afraid to play exactly the style of music that feels most real to him in the moment.
