"BLUES WITH A WHOLE LOT OF SOUL!"
Celebrated multi-instrumentalist bluesman AL LERMAN is considered among the top harmonica players in the country, and he has been heard on countless recordings and live sessions. His prowess on the harmonica has earned him eleven MAPLE BLUES AWARD nominations, while his engaging and dry wit has earned him a loyal following, building a solid career touring as an acoustic solo act. Al was founder and leader of the much-loved band FATHEAD, and worked with them from 1992-2016, garnering two JUNO AWARDS along the way. After years of writing for FATHEAD, Al has a legacy of songs that few Canadian Blues artists can match. With a great knowledge of the old blues tradition on both harmonica and guitar, he brings that sensibility to songs that are written about his own contemporary life and times. In 2016 his disc “Slow Burn” made the esteemed world-wide list of Top 100 Blues Albums. That same year he also garnered a Maple Blues Award nomination for “Acoustic Act Of The Year”. In 2017, he received a Recognition Award for “Leadership In Arts & Culture” from the County of Peterborough. His newest album “Northern Bayou” was released on April 12, 2019 to rave reviews world-wide.
