The sun is now shining on the Rockwater patio, so come out to the patio set of singer/songwriter Sean Burns on May 24.

“If you need me, I will be in Wisconsin,” sings Burns. But he’s just as likely to be found in Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa, or any number of smaller venues across the country as he relentlessly routs from one end of Canada to the other.

The Ontario-based artist taps into the bittersweet spirit of the road and then spins his way with a blend of electric and acoustic guitars and a wailing harmonica.

His third CD, Cold Beans and Broken Eggs, will resonate with fans of Canadiana, Americana, folk, country, and blues alike.

The songs capture the grittiness of the road in the stark, down-to-earth style of an authentic storyteller who lives to rock out, and you’ll find yourself digging them listen after listen.

Although he embodies the souls of greats like Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, and Bob Dylan, Burns has a sound all his own.
