About the event


By  any measure, Contemporary Roots & Blues artist Mike Biggar is a  natural live performer. With a musical history first baptized in a  gospel music upbringing, and soulful vocals that testify still to the  deep imprint of those early musical days, he is a picture of a lifetime  spent in performance.

Onstage his style is equal parts  gutsy and joyful; a warm, bourbon-esque cocktail of soulful, modern  roots & blues, a tonic to any listener thirsty for song writing  authenticity and raw, honest performance. His noted emotional delivery  punctuates his acclaimed songs with a throughline of genuineness that is  distinct, effective, and maybe even a bit spiritual. From acoustic duo  house concerts to full band festival and theatre stages, his rollicking,  high energy vocals steam down the line like a roots-inspired freight  train, perfectly paired with infectious melodies and mingled with his  warm, disarming humour.

Biggar has been honoured with numerous  regional awards in his 10-plus years career from both the East Coast  Music Association and Music New Brunswick, including ‘Blues Album of the  Year’, ‘Inspirational Album of the Year’ and more.  In Fall 2022,  Biggar confirmed new music plans for 2023, with new singles in  development and the award-winning Chris Kirby (Matt Andersen, Quote the  Raven) of Halifax Nova Scotia at the producer’s helm. Kirby and Biggar  have seized on a strong vision and called into action a true A-list of  Canadian studio talent, with a keen focus on their shared conviction to  deliver Biggar’s most soulful, authentic recordings to date, including  co-writes with Canadian blues gems such as Maple Blues Award winners  Suzie Vinnick and Charlie A’Court.

Biggar tours regularly and has  been a featured performer on major East Coast festival stages such as  the Stan Rogers Folk Festival, Cavendish Beach Music Festival, Kempt  Shore Acoustic Festival and Larlee Creek Hullabaloo. He has been an  official showcase artist at East Coast Music Week, Folk Music Ontario,  Folk Alliance International and more.  He has shared the stage with  artists such as Steve Earle, Matt Andersen, Stephen Fearing, Matt  Minglewood, Lynn Miles, Dave Gunning, Ron Hynes, Lukas Nelson, Del  Barber, Joey Landreth, and more. 2023-24-25 will see Biggar sharing his  compelling live performance brand more broadly than ever in markets  across Canada, the United Kingdom, the USA and more.​

“He'll have  you in tears with lines of love and regret, he'll rip your head off with  his powerhouse vocals, delivered with heartfelt emotion; Biggar  performs with such sincerity that you could almost say he was singing  just to you, and that is the mark of a great songwriter. He deserves  national recognition as one of the country’s top live performers,  whether in an intimate environment or a theatre stage.”   - BLUES &  ROOTS RADI0 (CANADA)
