Colin James coming to Mission

Canadian singer and songwriter will play at the Clark Theatre

Colin James is coming to Mission.

Rock.It Boy Entertainment announced on Monday morning that the Canadian singer will be performing at the Clarke Theatre on Thursday, March 15.

Tickets go on sale on Nov. 24.

From the prairies of Saskatchewan to the stages of the world, James has shared his talent with some of the greatest and most influential musicians of all time. A Juno Award winning singer-songwriter, James has quietly and steadily established himself as one of Canada’s greatest musicians.

For his 18th album, Blue Highways, James pays tribute to some of his long-time blues idols including Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Freddie King, Jr. Wells and Buddy Guy, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and William Bell to name a few.

In the spring of 2015 after wrapping up his Hearts on Fire Tour,James was loving playing with his band and really happy with the sound they had created on stage.

What better time to make a record! Especially the record Colin had been itching to make for years – a collection of some of his favourite blues tracks.

In less than a week he was recording in The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver and in just two days, Blue Highways was born. The lead single, Going Down was inspired by the great Freddie King.

James has been named as an inductee into the 2016 Western Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
