Guitarist Gaye Delorme to Appear in Calgary

Guitarist, vocalist and Grammy nominated songwriter Gaye Delorme performs in Calgary this coming weekend. Delorme has a long list of credits including several recordings, producing such artists as k.d. lang and Jann Arden, and co-produced several artists with Canadian born composer David Foster. For the last 10 years Gaye has appeared as signature performer at the Edmonton Folk Festival where he’s hosted the International Guitar Stage.

Winner of the Premier’s Award for Excellence, Gaye has caught the attention of fans and performers alike, prompting home-grown hero Colin James to exclaim “He’s a monster,” while raising the profile of Canadian music abroad and gaining recognition from celebrities like the much admired, and much missed, Stevie Ray Vaughn who labelled Gaye “One of the best I’ve heard.”

Delorme possesses a musical range unparalleled – from gut wrenching blues to improvisational jazz-influenced experimentation to stunning flamenco styling. He has mapped the existing musical territory and beyond. He brings his wide-ranging musical influences, from the country stylings of Chet Atkins and Doc Watson to the Brazilian Jobim.
