RAY BONNEVILLE

Description: "Original New Orleans Blues"

On tour from Austin, Texas

Ray Bonneville - guitar/ vocals
Richie Lawrence - piano/ accordion

Ray Bonneville is a poet of the demimonde who didn’t write his first song until his early 40s, some 20 years after he started performing. But with a style that sometimes draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel Lanois, this blues-influenced, New Orleans-inspired “song and groove man,” as he’s been so aptly described, luckily found his rightful calling.

Ray's many accolades include a Juno Award for his 1999 album, Gust of Wind. His post-Katrina ode, “I Am the Big Easy,” earned the International Folk Alliance’s 2009 Song of the Year Award, and in 2012, Bonneville won the solo/duet category in the Blues Foundation’s International Blues Challenge.

Richie Lawrence is a longtime fixture on the California roots music scene in the Loose Acoutic Trio, I See Hawks In LA and his own band currently The Yolos.
