The Blues that the Juno Award nominated Blackburn Brothers create is part of their inheritance, a legacy that began with Elias Earls, an enslaved man born in Kentucky in 1792 who escaped slave owners and found freedom in Canada. The Blackburn brothers' music is authentic and always about a message of history, freedom, legacy, family, Black unity, and love. Listen to SoulFunkn'BLUES and you will move to the heavy riff filled soul Blues, funky danceable Blues, and deep groove-based Blues. Listen to the lyrics and you will hear the stories of Black Canadians.
SoulFunkn'BLUES is a tribute to all the trailblazers and all of the ancestors and forgotten tribes who taught the Blackburn Brothers the importance of history, blues, soul, groove, rhythm, and life. It's a tribute to 231 years of Canadian Roots and Blues.
