Welcome to the Downchild Website
Colin Linden was a guest on the HoB Radio Hour last Sunday and mentioned he was touring with Downchild this year. Elwood said he was going to be at one of those shows so I figured it would be Toronto. Turns out Elwood will also be taking to the stage in Montreal and Ottawa as well! Woo-Hoo! There's no mention of Zee, although they were all on stage together in 2005 at Casino-Rama.
It’s time for Canada to celebrate their own legends of Blues! And when one thinks of blues music in Canada, the first name that springs to mind is DOWNCHILD. It’s been 40 years since Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh and his late brother, Hock formed the renowned group that would be the inspiration behind the world famous Blues Brothers and DOWNCHILD plans to celebrate their anniversary in style, with some very special friends - including blues brother and movie icon DAN AYKROYD aka Elwood Blues . Opening on the tour is COLIN LINDEN who will be performing both solo and then with the band. JAMES COTTON , WAYNE JACKSON OF THE MEMPHIS HORNS as well as JONAS , BOB WALSH and NANETTE WORKMAN will all make guest appearances along the way.
