Sherman Doucette was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, Sherman’s natural ear for music began developing at an early age. He left home at fifteen with a harmonica and a twenty dollar bill in his pocket, bound for Vancouver. It was there that he discovered the Chicago blues style on an album featuring Muddy Waters, Junior Wells and James Cotton. By seventeen, he had developed a style of playing greatly influenced by the late great Paul Butterfield. Sherman has had the great privilege of sharing the stage with legendary players such as John Lee Hooker, Albert Collins, Sony Land Slim, Pinetop Perkins, Jim Byrnes and Long John Baldry.

School of Blues will begin at 7:15 PM.
