Bio

This energetic duo, Honouring The Blues, has enough collective experience and musicianship to play in any scene or situation. Together they collaborate to display their love and respect for blues greats. The combined force is certainly greater than the sum of its parts. McConkey drives to an ever deeper level on the harmonica, and Avery is the the boogie that he rides upon.

"Harmonica" George McConkey, calling the Yukon home for 35 years, has accumulated many credits for his harmonica playing: a guest on Juno winner Jerry Alfred's 'Etsi Shon', Juno nominated band member of The Undertakin Daddies, Blue Warblers Canadian Folk Music Award. He has traveled extensively in North America, Europe, and attended the NanGing International Jazz Festival. He has also studied with Canadian Carlos Del Junco.
"George takes the musical moment and expands it with the inspiration from generations of harmonica greats"

Annie Avery, influenced by honkytonk style ragtime and blues, has been playing the scene for many years, sharing the stage with such artists as Brandon Isaac, Big Dave McLean, Harpdog Brown, and recording guest spots on albums by Canadian greats Kim Beggs, Kim Barlow, Indio,
Gordie Tentrees, Barb Chamberlin, Nicole Edwards, and many more. She has studied jazz, music education, and is privileged to teach in both private and group situations.
