Tickets are now available for Bywater Call at The Grace!
Meghan Parnell and Dave Barnes are the driving force behind Bywater Call, a powerhouse seven-piece Southern soul, roots rock band out of Toronto, Canada.
Formed in 2017, the band has received multiple Independent Blues and Maple Blues Award nominations including Entertainer of the Year and Best Female Vocalist for the 2023 Awards Season. They have toured extensively in Europe over the last few years, including in May and June of 2022, featuring a mainstage appearance at the Netherlands’ premiere blues festival Moulin Blues. Performances there were praised in Dutch and German media, with references to Meghan as one of the best female voices in the blues and roots music scene today.
In August 2023, the band will participate in Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea Mediterranean Cruise alongside headliners Blackberry Smoke, Christone “Kingfish” Ingram and Bonamassa himself.
They have commanded festival stages from Belgium to Germany in Europe, Florida to Kentucky and Tennessee in the USA, and Toronto to Quebec City in Canada. In May of 2023, they opened for the Canadian Award-winning band White Horse at the inaugural edition of the Smokestack Music Festival in Hamilton, Ontario.
Bywater Call continues to tour across the US throughout the remainder of 2023 and will return to tour Europe, including a first-time run in the UK starting September 22nd.
Bywater’s much anticipated sophomore album “Remain” was released September 2022 to rave reviews and is currently available on all streaming platforms.
Born out of a love for southern soul, blues and roots music and a passion to create a powerful and moving experience for listeners, Bywater Call is completed by Bruce McCarthy (drums), Mike Meusel (bass), newest member, John Kervin (keyboards), Stephen Dyte (trumpet) and Julian Nalli (tenor sax).
