April 7, 2016 Scribblers: Baltimore Road

Standard

We are delighted to welcome Baltimore Road to our stage in early April.

Influences such as The Mamas & Papas, The Eagles, The Beatles, The Byrds, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson, Dire Straits, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Heart, Fats Waller, Hoagy Carmichael and Steely Dan all colour the musical canvas that emerges distinctly as Baltimore Road.  Country, blues, rock and roll, R&B and 1930’s jazz…years of separate influences, writing and playing independently: Pam and Wayne as a folk-rock duo; Tom as a blues-rocker; Stew as a country-rocker; and Bob as a session drummer and member of many local bar and casino bands…all ultimately meshed into the magic that is Baltimore Road.
