If you haven’t had a chance to see Jack Broadbent perform live, it’s time you met this blues phenomenon. Twenty-something busker Jack Broadbent became an overnight celebrity after a video of him performing on the streets of Europe went viral. Nine years later his unique slide guitar stylings and gritty vocals continue to make waves globally. Now he returns to Calgary with his newest album, Ride. Praised by critics as “a simmering, spicy jambalaya of boogie, rock, and blues” and “a genre-defying collection of finely-crafted songs with real heart,” Jack Broadbent is proving that he can go from viral sensation to bonafide star.
