On the Road with Dutch Mason

dutch

On the Road with Dutch Mason is a smooth fusion of rhythm and melodies in a raucous yet poignant biography of Canada’s best known blues man, Dutch Mason. The uncontested ‘Prime Minister of the Blues’, Dutch played with the likes of Junior Wells, James Cotton and John Lee Hooker. Set against the backdrop of an imaginary ten-city tour, complete with a run of electrifying shows and all-night, post-gig revelries, Dutch’s unbelievable but true stories bring to life his heyday on the Canadian blues scene. Dutch and his band’s musical sub-culture seem all the more wild and outrageous alongside the academic perspective of narrator and harmonica player David Bedford.
