The Dylan Farrell Band at the Rec Room | January 6, 9:30pm
Dylan Farrell is a born guitarist whose playing displays a level, emotional maturity and a technical depth and dexterity that is truly remarkable for someone only in his mid-twenties. Originally from Minto, New Brunswick, he began his professional career playing in his father’s band in Saint John at the age of 15. Upon moving to Edmonton in 2012, he almost instantly became a fixture in the city’s thriving roots and blues scene.
The Dylan Farrell Band is now a two-time winner of the Memphis Bound Blues Challenge and will return to the iconic city in January 2018 to compete in the International Blues Challenge. While they are there, The Dylan Farrell Band will also be recording an album at Ardent Studios which has been graced by the likes of James Taylor, ZZ Top, and BB King. Meanwhile, Dylan’s debut EP, Blues Before, is set for release at the end of November.
