A musical family with a name that is steeped in Canada’s musical and social history, Blackburn is comprised of four musical brothers. The family’s ancestry is closely associated with the Underground Railroad that helped bring slaves north. Their more recent family history includes a father who became a seminal figure in Toronto’s R&B scene. So, forming a band that celebrates and carries the family tradition forward was natural. Their albums and live performances blend a mix of soul, R&B, funk, and of course, blues.
