Welcome to the on-line home of Calgary based musician, blues guitarist & singer/songwriter  John Rutherford. 

Coming soon to a stream near you! 

I've been in the studio recently working on a new four song EP that is due for release in the days to come. The project is produced by legendary guitarist Tim Williams and engineered by Steve Gerard. Also on the sessions is a “Western Canadian Wrecking Crew” rhythm section with Thom Moon on drums and Bill Price on bass. The new work will be streaming everywhere and we'll have some physical product as well. I'll be announcing soon some live shows around the province of Alberta to celebrate the release. Can't wait to share some new music.

New Videos! 

Pleased to share some really great video footage. The filming took place at The King Eddy in Calgary back in October when we performed an opening set for guitar great Amos Garrett. The shoot was made possible by the diligent and highly skilled folks at the National Music Centre and was part of The Story Tellers Oral History Project sponsored by ATB Financial. Thanks to all involved. Check out my video page.
