The  Green Guitar Folk House Presents

Ray Bonneville with Richie Lawrence

Ray Bonneville is a hard driving, blues dipped, song and groove man writing about the people on the fringe of society. Ray’s vibe is loose and soulful, with a greasy guitar style, horn-like harmonica, smoky vocals and pulsing foot percussion. In 1999 he won the Juno award (Canada’s Grammy) and was nominated twice more. Ray won the International Blues Challenge in 2012 in Memphis. He has recently been selected a s a featured showcase artist for the 2022 Folk Alliance International conference. 

“Master of the slow burn, the gentle funk, the infectious rhythm” – Ottowa Citizen
“Like gunpowder and opium . . .” — Ray Wylie Hubbard
 “Few can ride a groove like Ray Bonneville” — No Depression
 
Richie Lawrence got deep into blues and roots music, absorbing the styles of Professor Longhair, Otis Spann, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Garth Hudson. Richie’s grasp of piano was forged in blues bands opening for and absorbing Willie Dixon, Mance Lipscomb, John Hammond, and The Ramones. Richie is also a master of the accordion.
 
“Richie has mastered the ability to take Roots Americana in its most August lazy and yet make it seem fresh. It is strange and wonderful.”     – Dan Collins, LA Record
