CartagoYeg Brunch Series Presents: Dylan Farrell
May 6th 2018
Two sets between 12pm and 2pm
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, and 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, lending his consummate skill as a sideman to several acts, and hosting a weekly blues jam at the Have Mercy Southern Table and Bar.
Having solidified a sterling reputation through these side projects, Dylan is now placing his focus on his own musical voice. With his band, the Dylan Farrell Band, he is a two-time winner of the Memphis Bound Blues Challenge, and semi finalist at the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN. While in Memphis, Dylan recorded his debut LP with producer Brian Moncarz at Ardent Studios, which has been graced by the likes of James Taylor, ZZ Top, and BB King and is set to be released Fall 2018.
