New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Beeble Music) - Sugar Blue loves the road…in between studio sessions for his September release he announced the upcoming Summer Tour across Canada, US & Europe. The new tunes, a mix of rockish originals with a touch of jazz and an eye to the blues roots, will be on the setlist.

"One of the foremost harmonica blowers in all of modern blues" - Rolling Stone

Few artists in a lifetime can claim to have truly mastered their artform. Although you'd never hear this from his own lips, there are plenty of others who have said just that and testify to bona fide harmonica deity, Sugar Blue.

One of the foremost blues harp musicians of his generation and indeed this century, Sugar Blue's association with The Rolling Stones is perhaps his best known work, featuring on classic Stones' albums 'Some Girls', 'Emotional Rescue' and 'Tattoo You'.

However, his other musical collaborators and luminaries read like a who's who of rock'n'roll legends. They include Frank Zappa, Bob Dylan, Willie Dixon, Stan Getz and Junior Wells to name a few. He's shared stages with the likes of Muddy Waters, B.B. King and Art Blakey and accompanied Fats Domino, Ray Charles and Jerry Lee Lewis in the Cinemax special 'Fats Domino and Friends'.

When you speak of Sugar Blue, you are speaking of pure, unadulterated musical pedigree. In 1985 this pedigree won Sugar Blue a Grammy Award for his work on the Atlantic album Blues Explosion, an album recorded live at the Montreux Jazz Festival. He further performed on Willie Dixon's 1989 Grammy Award winning album Hidden Charms.

Sugar Blue encompasses all of his learnings and influences into his visionary and singular style; technically dazzling yet wholly soulful. He bends, shakes and spills flurries of notes with simultaneous precision and abandon, combining dazzling technique with smouldering expressiveness, giving off enough energy to light up Las Vegas.

Through his musical endeavours, Sugar Blue has forged a modern style of Blues that is instantly recognisable as his own.

Canadian music fans will be delighted to hear that Sugar Blue will be playing concerts at at the Mont Tremblant Blues Festival on July 16th as well as the Cisco Ottawa Festival on the day after, more gigs throughout the summer in the US and Europe:
