The Lineup  for the 15th Anniversary

Canal Bank Shuffle is here


The Canal Bank Shuffle Blues Festival runs Oct. 13-16, 2016
Volunteer Applications and Artist Submission forms are now available online

The Canal Bank Shuffle Blues Festival will celebrate it’s 15th anniversary this year. It began in 2002 with 12 bands over 3 days. Last year it boasted 37 shows over 4 days. Fans and artists have come to look forward to a great weekend. Each year the festival has grown and included more and more international acts as well as the finest blues musicians in Canada! Several charities have also been helped along the way.
But the focus is on music and making everyone – artists, fans, volunteers and sponsors – feel like this is an exciting and amazing and fun event. Our friends extend beyond the organizers, talent and advertisers until our fans are now seen around North America at festivals and premiere events like the Blues Cruise and The International Blues Challenge. These fans have truly become some of our best cheerleaders, talent scouts and ambassadors! We thank them sincerely and hope more and more of you will join in the fun. See some testimonials here. We look forward to hearing some of your blues tales. Email us at And if you haven’t already, join our VIP email list here.
