Award-winning harmonica player, Carlos del Junco, to perform at Lester Centre

Blues fans living in Prince Rupert can enjoy some of the talented-Carlos del Junco's harmonica playing on March 17 at the Lester Centre.

On Saturday, March 17, the Prince Rupert Concert Society will be presenting Carlos del Junco and his band at the Lester Centre of the Arts, with the performance starting at 8 p.m.

“Being the recent winner of a Maple Blues Award, the audience is in for a good show,” Said Doug Moore of the Prince Rupert Concert Society.

Del Junco and his family immigrated to Canada from Havana, Cuba, when Carlos was just one year old. Over a decade later, when he was fourteen years old, del Junco picked up a harmonica, and hasn’t looked back since.

Carlos de Junco is an accomplished harmonica player that specializes in playing the blues, however Carlos and his band have also known to play jazz, New Orleans second line grooves, swing, Latin, hip-hop, ska melodies and rock.

Del Junco has won countless awards for his harmonica playing, including two gold medals at the Hohner World Harmonica Championships held in Germany, and eight “Harmonica Player of the Year” Canadian Maple Blues Awards, one of which he recently just won for 2011.

Tickets for Carlos del Junco can be purchased at the Lester Centre box office, or at Cook’s Jewelers for $24.
