The Winnipeg-based rock ’n’ roll and blues artist is currently touring the southern part of the province and will stop by Kamloops for a house concert on April 4.

Carmichael’s music has been described as “meaty, rocking alt-country with a hint of blues.”

The artist’s self-titled album was released in 2009. He has also worked with a number of Winnipeg-based acts like Big Dave McLean, Romi Mayes, The Perpetrators, the Scott Nolan Band, Righteous Ike and the Doug and Jess Band.

The show is the final Home Routes concert of the season. Home Routes is a not-for-profit arts organization that creates show opportunities for traveling artists in communities across Canada by working with volunteers who host shows in their own homes.

Carmichael’s tour continues with shows each day. After Kamloops he’s in Merritt, Anmore and Metchosin before traversing Vancouver Island south to Victoria.
