2009 CFMA nominee, 2009 IAMA runner up, 2007 Juno nominee, and 2006 WCMA Winner
Award-winning roots guitarist Joël Fafard is a phenomenal slide and finger style player who writes stirring, melodic compositions that paint pictures as vivid as any song with words. He is that rare breed of instrumentalist: the kind whose appeal reaches far beyond the realm of serious guitar enthusiasts. With his hilarious commentary delivered "farm-boy" style he quickly wins his audience over. He also sounds like a natural blues vocalist, and on his latest album he presents himself as such, singing traditional southern blues songs.
