Blues at the Bow provides an incredibly unique, live entertainment venue that has been bringing 
Grammy, Juno, W.C. Handy Award, and International Blues Challenge award-winning and nominated artists to the southern Alberta area.


Colin Linden is a genuine renaissance man of roots music. He’s a singer and songwriter of great skill, an in-demand and prolific record producer (Bruce CockburnTom WilsonColin James), a sideman to the stars as guitarist for the likes of Bruce Cockburn, Emmylou HarrisRobert Plant and Alison Krauss, musical director on the hit TV show Nashville, and, for the past decade-plus, a member of the highly successful trio, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.

Colin’s songs have been covered by The Band, The Blind Boys of AlabamaKeb’ Mo’, and Colin James, and his well-stocked trophy case includes eight JUNO Awards (the Canadian Grammy), multiple Maple Blues Awards, and a Toronto Arts Award.  He was nominated for a Grammy Award for the star-studded A Tribute to Howlin’ Wolf CD, and was nominated in 2002 for Lucinda Williams’ track on the Timeless (Hank Williams tribute) album, which won for Country Album of The Year. That same year his involvement in the O Brother, Where Art Thou project was rewarded, as “O Brother” won for Best Album and the Down From The Mountain soundtrack won for Folk Album of The Year  (Linden and Chris Thomas King had a song credited together on that one). Linden has a well-deserved reputation as a slide guitar virtuoso of true originality and his riveting slide work can be heard both on albums from numerous artists as well as on his own sizeable solo catalogue.
