One of our fav’s is coming back to get us feeling the groove. The bluesy groove that is. This seasoned performer always wow’s us with his talent. Multiple Maple Blues Awards and Juno Winner. For nearly four decades Morgan Davis has been on the road travelling across Canada, the United States and Europe.
“Morgan’s deep resonating voice and true-to-the-roots guitar work make a great combination. Anyone who appreciates straight-up blues delivered with taut, tough intensity and a good dose of humour will love Morgan.“Simply stated, for my money, he is one of Canada’s best bluesmen.” ~James Doran, Ottawa Blues Society~
Davis’ songwriting talent received international recognition when Colin James covered his searing ballad “Why’d You Lie”. Morgan’s passion for the Blues has never wavered… and he fully expects to be on the road for the rest of his life. Luckily for us he likes coming to Paisley real regular like. http://www.morgandavis.com/Tickets are just $15 + tx and are available at Back Eddie’s.
Reservations are doable – email or call during business hours. Doors open at 7, if you wish to come for dinner first please reserve. Nibbles will be available during intermission as well. Next show is June 21, Andrew Laviolette – more info coming soon in an email to you if you get on our list at email@example.com.

This is a wonderful event – youth, 21 years of age and under vi for a spot on the stages of Owen Sound’s magnificent summer festival, Summerfolk, which happens on the 3rd weekend in August (16-18). The chosen youths get to perform solo and with other seasoned performers throughout the weekend. A great opportunity for exposure and experience which could truly help launch a career. Back Eddie’s proudly hosts one of the preliminary showcases where 3 acts are chosen. They go one to compete with 6 other acts chosen from two other venues, one last weekend in Owen Sound and one happening next weekend in Meaford. Good luck to all the contenders. There usually isn’t a lot of space at Eddie’s once the place fills up with relatives and friends of the performers, but we’ll try to squeeze in as many as possible. A donation towards Summerfolk would be greatly appreciated to help with costs. http://www.summerfolk.org/

@ BACK EDDIE’SSing, finches and sparrows, the gilt bow and arrows of Eros are coming to town. Eddie knows lovin’ when push comes to shovin’, knows Cupid’s a cat of renown. And so, they’ve joined forces, set 4 smoochy courses, designed to keep lovin’ around.
Bruce County Beef Wellington – creates warm cozies in the bellington, known widely as a direct route to one’s heart .
Manitoulin Trout Citrus Almandine -laid out gently before you, on a bed of spiced rice. Whew, is it hot in here ?
Chicken Cordon Bleu -picture cozy bacon-wrapping around tender white breasts oozing gooey cheeses. -can induce open moaning.
Vegan Roasted Vegetable Pasta -creating this kind of wild veggie orgy can be risky, but in a good way, nudge, nudge.
Locavore lover , Ol’ Bob “Lover” Robb has promised to pick out some songs for the job of churnin’ the yearnin’ , and things of the like , for keeping the balance on that tandem bike . We are deep into winter, the snow is falling and so are the temperatures. So let’s turn up the heat and make some heart and belly warming plans for Valentine’s Day.
At Back Eddie’s we are rounding up the locavore love to create some spectacular dishes for you to enjoy. .

There is a kind of magic and wonder that almost shimmers in the air when two beautiful voices mix and meld together as one. Beckon is a female duo with just such an enchanted pairing. Two individually versatile musicians, Beth Hamilton and Connie Rossitter have combined their talents and their names to form a musical tour-de-force that causes listeners to sit up and take notice.
Dreamers with brave and romantic hearts, their fresh acoustic pop sound and graceful style achieve a broad commercial appeal. Rapidly gaining recognition for their captivating original music and stunning trademark harmonies, they are poised to make a big splash in the music scene.
Following on the heels of their highly successful EP “The Summer Sessions” (August 2011) fans are eagerly awaiting Beckon’s first full-length studio album. With Juno nominated producer J. Richard Hutt at the helm, this FACTOR funded album will be released June 1, 2012. This is the same successful pairing that garnered Beckon unsolicited radio play from their EP “The Summer Sessions” on radio stations including Mix106.5, 860 CFOS & CFBU 103.7. The 2012 album release will kick-off a busy summer and fall tour which will see Beckon play over 40 venues across Ontario.
Beckon’s sheer joy of performing is infectious, evidenced by their enthusiastic and devoted following. Trading off between piano and guitar, and seamlessly shifting between lead and harmony, it is at times difficult to distinguish their individual voices in this captivating and seemingly effortless pairing. Beckon has played festivals including Summerfolk, Niagara Wine Festival, Tin Pan North, OTHERfolk and Winterfolk and has already shared the stage with such notables as Don Ross, Ralph Murphy, Mark Mariash, Steve Kennedy, Dean McTaggart, David Woodhead, and Wendell Ferguson. These engaging live performances culminated in a recent Owen Sound Cultural Award Nomination.
Sensual, ethereal and elegant, Beckon breathes life into songs that emanate from a deep, genuine place in their hearts and resonate so loudly within our own.
