Joel Fafard

With a Juno nomination, a Western Canadian Music Award, two WCMA
nominations and two Canadian Folk Music Award nominations to his
credit, Joel Fafard has proven that he can take a niche genre like
instrumental guitar music and make a significant name for himself at it.
So why not take a step in yet another somewhat niche direction? Like,say, vocal covers of old Southern roots and blues songs?
For his new album, Cluck Old Hen, Fafard has done just that, offering
up classic-sounding renditions of instantly-recognizable numbers like
“Come on in My Kitchen” and “Don’t Let your Deal Go Down,” all sung
in a weathered baritone that proves Fafard’s entré into instrumental
music was not for lack of singing chops. The guitar work – mostly
national steel – is every bit as wicked as one would expect from Fafard,and violinist Richard Moody brings the arrangements to life with some tasty playing of his own.
Among the songs Fafard covers on the recording are Muddy Waters’ “
I Can’t Be Satisfied,” Willie Dixon’s “Spoonful” and the traditional Appalachian pieces “John Hardy” and “Angeline and the Baker.” He also includes a couple of more recent classics: Richard Thompson’s
“Vincent Black Lightening” and Lyle Lovett’s “If I had a Boat.”
None of the tracks is actually new to the Fafard repertoire. He has
been including them in his live set for years. “Everybody was asking
which albums they were on, and I got tired of saying ‘none of them,’”
he says.
After taking a couple of months off playing at the end of last year – a
creative breather he tries to make room for once a year – Fafard found
himself drawn to his dobro and to his collection of Southern gems, and
he decided it was time to commit them to record. In the process, he
says, he found his voice as a singer like never before.
Though Fafard sounds like a natural blues vocalist, with a voice that is
sure to seduce fans of Kelly Joe Phelps, he has always been an
instrumentalist first and foremost. He picked up the guitar at 15, took a few lessons from celebrated prairie musician Jack Semple, then went on to study for two years at the well-respected Capilano College music program in North Vancouver.
He launched his professional career in the mid-90s as a member of
Scruj MacDuhk, the predecessor of the Juno-winning Grammynominated
Duhks. Later, he established himself as a solo singersongwriter,
releasing three albums, touring coffee houses and earning
praise for the maturity of his songwriting. However, Fafard was never happy in the singer-songwriter role, and decided to take a chance on the career path he really wanted but never dreamed would pay: being
an instrumental guitarist.
As it happens, it did pay. Fafard’s sophomore instrumental album,…and another thing…, earned a Western Canadian Music Award for Outstanding Instrumental Album and was nominated for both a Juno and a Canadian Folk Music Award. Its follow-up, Three Hens Escape Oblivion, received a second CFMA nod and was a runner up for an International Acoustic Music Award. Meanwhile, Fafard’s music was
featured in the TV shows Alice I Think and Road Trip Nation, and he
co-scored the Middle of Somewhere TV series with Jason Plumb. In
2008, he was commissioned by The Globe Theatre in Regina to write
a one-man show of tunes with tales.
Fafard’s love of the blues goes back to his coming of age in Regina,
when the local biker bar Georgia Fats was a destination for musicians
from the Chicago blues scene. Canadians like Amos Garrett and Sue
Foley also passed through the joint, as did Delta bluesmen like Charlie
Musselwhite.
Blues music has always influenced Fafard’s instrumental work, but
now, it takes centre stage as part of his newest musical direction.
Fans of the blues will be thrilled to discover Fafard’s new sound.
