Johnny Cox and The Magnetic Line Return to the Linsmore Tavern!!!

Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Blues Musician Johnny Cox is making his return to the Linsmore Tavern this Thursday and he's bringing his band the Magnetic Line with him!  Inspired by many styles of music, it's the Blues that truly drive Johnny wild. 

In March, 2014, Johnny released his debut album, Thin Blue Line featuring eleven high-energy original tracks that represent the palette of his musical personality. Thin Blue Line has garnered Johnny much attention in the Blues community throughout Canada and internationally. With an exciting new album in production, Johnny is poised to become a well-known and potent fixture in the Blues scene.

Johnny embraces many Roots styles but in his heart he’s still a junkie for the Blues; playing guitar in his sleep and bending every note.  Johnny whiled away the years on a Stratocaster devoting himself to the techniques of Eric Clapton, Albert King, John Lee Hooker and Buddy Guy, irresistibly drawn to Blues music and the deep emotional pool it embodied.

Come check out one of Canada's top Blues artist this Thursday Night!  There is No Cover and the show starts at 9pm, so don't miss it!!!
