Blair Hebert is a Vancouver based singer/songwriter acknowledged by both fans and peers as a solid performer, gifted singer songwriter, and accomplished guitarist. He currently is performing an original suite of songs he collectively calls the Sacred Work Ancient Earth Opus.
During his many years as a career musician, Blair has performed for thousands of people across Canada and the US. New opportunities are emerging in other parts of the world to perform and record, but mostly Blair appears close to home so he can be with his family and contribute to the culture of his city, Vancouver.
Since 1998, Blair has lead his entertaining five-piece jump/swing combo, The Swinging Detectives. He is currently developing an original interactive cabaret show featuring the Detectives and a cast of colorful 1950s characters. For private functions and in clubs he performs vintage jump blues swing tunes solo acoustic or with a band.
In 2006 Blair self-produced his first full-length CD, Know, drawing on songs he had performed for years as a solo acoustic artist. Know is getting a lot of attention from a grassroots audience and online through MySpace and other music sites. Using many of Vancouver’s finest musicians, Know is an acoustic groove-driven compilation with tangy B3 organ and Latin percussion--oh yes, and accordion too! Blair performs songs from the CD at intimate venues around Vancouver. If you’d like to know more, check out Blair’s MySpace page or visit his website, http://www.knowblair.com/

2 hours of original and 2 hours of covers. From melodic, rhythmic, to moody driving tunes. Covers are often rare gems from a music era gone by, chosen for some special something that comes out in performance. They are all loved songs. Expect funny life and road stories. Expect to be amazed at how easy it is to dance to a solo acoustic swing performance. Even easier with a band.
