Born and raised in the heart of Jackson, Mississippi, Zac Harmon is a true disciple of the music that emanated from the city’s historic Farish Street district. Universally recognized as the home of such great blues legends as the late, great Elmore James, Farish Street was quite simply the impetus for the blues, as it was the center of culture, commerce and creativity during Harmon’s early years. While in high school and college, Harmon gigged as a guitarist for the likes of Z.Z. Hill, McKinley Mitchell, Dorothy Moore, King Floyd and Sam Myers. Relocating to L.A. in the early eighties, he worked as a studio musician, then established himself as a writer and producer, crafting songs for the OJays, Freddie Jackson, Karyn White, Alexander O'Neal, Black Uhuru and the Whispers. While composing and performing music for a movie score, Harmon was finally compelled to pursue his longtime dream to return to his roots and record his first blues project. The result was the 2002 “Live at Babe & Ricky's Inn”, an electrifying testimonial to the Mississippi blues. The album showcased the sound at its best and introduced Zac Harmon as a true torchbearer for the next generation of the blues. In 2004, Zac Harmon & the Midsouth Blues Revue won the Blues Foundations prestigious International Blues Challenge (IBC) title of Best Unsigned Band". Zac Harmon continues to enthral audiences and garner praise from the media and fans alike. The Zac Harmon Band features Buthel on Bass, Cedric Goodman on Drums, Corey Lacy and Rodney B.R. Millon on guitar. The listeners of XM Satellite Radio voted Zac Harmon Best New Blues Artist in the 2005 XM Nation Music Awards. Harmon finished 2005 with a Best New Artist Debut nomination from the Blues Foundation for the 2006 Blues Music Awards. Zac has a busy summer underway with stops all over North America including the Calgary International Blues Festival and of course, Blues at the Bow!

Bow Island
Country: ca


Located in the historic Bow Theatre - Bow Island, Alberta Canada - the house is a down-home club in the tradition of juke joints of old. Crankin’ out rockin’ live blues, many times along with an opening acoustic set; Blues at the Bow has garnered the distinction of being a listener’s venue, as well as a dance-party haven with it’s frequent double-billed shows. 

Blues at the Bow opens it’s doors to national and international-level artists and it’s history of sold-out performances, along with high praise from the Musicians alike, attests to the magic of the place. A balcony, three-tiered levels of table and chair seating and the sunken, infamous ‘sloped’ dance floor, provides excellent sightlines. On site, a state-of-the-art sound system that is second to none.
