Son of Dave, Ben Sures celebrating coming home at WECC Aug. 14

  • Print

Thomas Wolfe wrote You Can’t Go Home Again, but don’t offer that piece of wisdom to a pair of former Winnipeggers preparing for a homecoming concert this summer.

Son of Dave, the nom de plume for former Crash Test Dummies member Benjamin Darvill, is teaming up with Ben Sures for what is dubbed a Throwback Thursday show on Aug. 14 at the West End Cultural Centre.

Son of Dave, who has spent the last 15 years in London and released his sixth album, Blues At The Grand in November 2013, writes in a press release that he’s sorry for not returning home sooner, and promises to "raise the roof off our dear old West End Cultural Centre."

Sures, meanwhile, moved to Alberta, and his latest recording, Son of Trouble, was the 2014 winner of the Edmonton Music Award’s blues recording of the year.

Tickets go on sale Friday for $15 at the WECC, Ticketmaster, Music Trader and the Winnipeg Folk Festival Music Store. Tickets will be $20 at the door.
