Jim Byrnes and Babe Gurr (below) have a concert in Surrey Nov. 18.

A night of song with Byrnes and Gurr

Jim Byrnes and Babe Gurr perform at the Surrey Arts Centre on Nov. 18.

Juno Award-winning blues singer and guitarist Jim Byrnes and special guest Babe Gurr return to the Surrey Arts Centre after their sold-out show two years ago.

Singing from a playlist of fan favourites and newly released material, Byrnes continues to dig deep into the traditions that have influenced his life.

Everywhere West marks the fourth collaboration between Byrnes and Juno award-winning musician and producer, Steve Dawson. Fans of their previous work can rest assured that the intricate acoustic melodies, dirty blues guitar, funky organ and passionate interplay remain.

Special guest Gurr opens the show with the rootsy blues and world sounds that are winning her rave reviews and awards internationally.

Her much anticipated album titled “SideDish” takes her in a new direction, exploring world music fused with her own unique roots style and writing. Italian, Spanish, Middle-Eastern, Brazilian and New Orleans influences are the backdrop of Gurr’s eight self-penned tunes, plus two cover songs sung in Italian.

Byrnes and Gurr perform at the Surrey Arts Centre, 13750 88 Ave., Nov. 18, 8 p.m. Tickets are $17 and $30, available by calling 604-501-5566 or at tickets.surrey.ca
