Blues rock extraordinaire, and Maple Blues Award winner Ross Neilsen is coming to Golden for two shows at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on June 26 and 27.

Known as one of Canada’s hardest working blues rock acts, Ross Neilsen does it right. He takes strong, timeless material, and takes it to a place that matters —to the people.

For more than six years Neilson has been hitting the pavement, playing more that 1,000 shows and travelling half a million kilometres.

Proving that hard work pays off, he has been honoured with a nomination for Best New Artist at the Maple Blues Awards in 2010, two Rising Star nominations from CBC, back to back Blues Album of the Year nominations from the East Coast Music Association, a win for Best Blues Recording for the album Redemption at the 2010 MusicNB awards, and most recently, Neilsen has been selected to represent at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival and the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.

Neilsen’s latest release, Resurrection, was recorded in Louisiana at Dockside Studios, produced by Anders Osborne, and engineered by Grammy winner Warren Riker.

Resurrection contains 10 original songs, each one a unique sonic assault that draws from Neilsen’s full palate of influences.

The show starts at 9:30p.m., with no cover charge. To hear some of Neilsen’s music, go to
