On Saturday May 5, BluSeed Studios will be closing out the Spring 2018 Live at BluStage season with the fabulous Dawn Tyler Watson. Stated perfectly by Blues Review Magazine; “Watson, in a nutshell, smokes. She has a kit bag full of smooth moves, and a personality that lifts off the page.”
This is Dawn Tyler Watson’s second performance in Saranac Lake. Those who were at her first will attest that you should not miss this show!
Dawn will be joined by the fabulous 7 piece Ben Racine Band which includes a horn section.
In the past two decades, Watson has earned her place among Canada’s Blues elite. An accomplished and dynamic performer, her fiery stage presence has earned her national and international recognition.
In January of 2017, she took home the coveted 1st place spot out of over 260 acts at the 33rd International Blues Challenge. Dawn is also is the recipient of three Canadian Maple Blues Awards and nine Quebec Lys Blues Awards. She’s earned the Screaming Jay Hawkins Award for Best Live Performance, a Trophées France Blues for female International Artist of the Year, and a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Best Vocalist.
Her artistic style is an eclectic influence of Jazz, Soul and Gospel. She has played festivals and concert halls across 4 continents, recorded four albums, and appeared on numerous compilations. She has shared the stage with an array of premiere artists, including Oliver Jones, Jeff Healy, Koko Taylor, Susan Tedeschi, and Cyndi Lauper.
