Rick Fines in Herons! Dinner Show!

Steeped in roots music, Rick Fines crafts a unique blend of warm-hearted blues, juke joint folk, and dockside soul that both embraces and defies the genres that influence him. As a veteran of the North American blues and folk circuits, he engages audiences with captivating songs, diverse guitar styling and his signature vocal growl. 

Rick Fines is appearing in Herons at the Heriot Bay Inn for a dinner show on Thursday May 24. It's $45 for the show and a two course dinner (5:30 seating). It's $20 for a show-only seat (6:30 seating). Call the Inn to reserve! 250.285.3322.

Rick’s career has seen him working in stellar collaboration and as a successful solo act.  He first gained attention as part of the legendary Jackson Delta. He’s since released four solo albums, another with his own Rick Fines trio, and a critically acclaimed disc with fellow troubadour, Suzie Vinnick.  Along the way he has racked up both awards and accolades. His partnership with Suzie garnered a Maple Blues Songwriter of the Year Award.  On his own, he’s pulled in two more Maple Blues Awards (for Solo Act of the Year), as well as an astonishing eight other nominations.  While his songwriting chops won him a 2003 International Songwriting Competition, he’s equally proficient on guitar – having played for legendary blues piano player Pinetop Perkins, songstress Colleen Peterson, folk icon Penny Lang, and many others.
