Colin James Announces Spring Canada Tour Dates

 Tickets On Sale October 14th, 2016 

October 11, 2016 – Critically acclaimed, Juno Award winning singer-songwriter Colin James has announced cross-Canada tour dates in support of his new album Blue Highways (released via True North Records).

Blue Highways pays tribute to some of the singer/guitarist’s long time blues idols including Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Freddie KingJr. Wells & Buddy Guy, Peter GreenRobert Johnson and William Bell to name a few.  In the spring of 2015 Colin wrapped up his Hearts on Fire tour.  After a couple of months of straight touring, Colin was loving playing with the band and really happy with the sound they had created on stage.  What better time to make a record?  Especially the record Colin had been itching to make for years – a collection of some of his favourite blues tracks.  In less than a week Colin and his touring band went into The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver and in just 2 days, Blue Highways was born.

“My band and I are really excited about playing some of these great blues songs for live audiences across the country,” said James of the tour.
