This April 20, singer, guitarist and songwriter Dylan Wickens will take the stage at the Dominion House, at 3 Guelph Street.
“Now in his 40th year, the career and music of (Wickens) has focus, purpose and a story to tell,” reads a press release circulated by Wickens’ publicist. “Years of working as a sideman and occasional front man with the best in the Toronto roots scene through his twenties and thirties provided time and experience to refine his craft and absorb the best qualities of the musicians he supported as Wickens found his own voice, his own story, his own stage to command.”
Wickens released a CD, Tattoo Black, in 2010 and plans to release his second album, Love & Lust, very soon.
Past collaborators include Pat Travers, Jeff Healey, Serena Ryder, and Sonny Landreth. Currently, Wickens performs in a trio, The Grand Naturals, with drummer Al Webster and bassist Dennis Pinhorn.
This show will mark Wickens’ second performance in Stratford since he became a resident of the city. He first became acquainted with Stratford while playing the Blues and Ribfest in 2012.
Wickens’ Dominion House show starts between 9:30 - 10 p.m. and includes free admission.
