Blues Cargo


This episode features the Whitehorse band Blues Cargo. The six- member band is fronted by veteran Yukon’s blues man Manfred Janssen. Manfred on lead vocals and electric guitar, is joined by long time Yukon music staples Rob Bergman on bass, Jim Salt on drums, Bob Hamilton on electric guitar and Annie Avery laying the foundation on the Hammond organ. Harmonica player extraordinaire, George McConkey from Dawson City, happened to be in town that day so was invited to join the session.

We recorded this event on the deck of the Village Bakery in Haines Junction, Yukon, in July 2022
