Australian blues musician Ash Grunwald is bringing his one man show to The Royal. Travelling Australia and the world for the last 12 years, Tuesday night is Fernie's chance to experience his unique mix of blues, electronica, and hip hop.

While Grunwald is looking forward to sharing some songs off his most recent album, Gargantua, he'll be playing a wide mix of music spanning a few different genres.

“I'll be playing some of the songs from [my latest] album. I also have five studio albums so I have a lot of original material, and a lot of old blues songs that I've rejigged, and I'm working on some new things as well.”

He went on to explain, “The last couple of years I've been a little more regimented, just got through the songs, played a single from one album to the next, but this tour is going to be a little different.

“What I'm really loving about this tour is getting back to a more organic show, melding all the songs together a bit, and making it more of a journey.”

Grunwald has just finished wrapping up a set of shows in his native Australia and is happy to be spending the next few months in Canada.

“The last five years I've tried to get over every year to try to build something and get into some of those really cool Canadian festivals,” he said. “I feel like there's a common understanding between Australians and Canadians. I get along really well with Canadian people and it just feels really natural and a little bit like a second home.”

Don't miss your chance to catch Ash Grunwald live at The Royal, Tuesday night, 9 pm.
