Artist Description

They call him Shrimp Daddy and he plays the Blues.

Michael ‘Shrimp Daddy Reid’ is the winner of the 2011 MAPLE BLUES AWARD for “NEW ARTIST OR GROUP OF THE YEAR” and was nominated for the 2011 CANADIAN INDEPENDENT MUSIC AWARDS FOR “BLUES ARTIST/GROUP OF THE YEAR”

His deep powerful vocals and soulful harmonica, supported by his hard playing band The Sharpshooters, will whisk you from the juke joints of Mississippi to the hard edge blues clubs of Chicago, and leave you swingin’ and jumpin’ west coast style. Inspired by the music of Little Walter, Willie Dixon, Howlin’ Wolf & Muddy Waters, and his personal favorite, William Clarke, Shrimp Daddy carries on the tradition of heartfelt blues performance.

Transplanted from “La Belle Province” this native Montrealer now makes Nova Scotia his home. He is a driving force in vocalizing, interpreting and writing Chicago and West Coast jump and swing blues.

Michael “Shrimp Daddy” Reid is a must hear!
