“If you need me, I’ll be in Wisconsin,” sings Sean Burns, but he’s just as likely to be found in Calgary or Ottawa. Touring relentlessly from one end of Canada to the other, 29-year-old, Ontario-based singer and songwriter Sean Burns taps into the bittersweet spirit of the road, blended with electric and acoustic guitars and a soulful harmonica.

The newly released Cold Beans and Broken Eggs will resonate with fans of Canadiana, Americana, folk, country and blues alike. The songs, which hint at such influences as Steve Earle and Johnny Cash, capture the grittiness of the road in the stark, down-to-earth style of an authentic storyteller who also knows how to rock.

Sean Burns’ third album evokes images of the itinerant life, with songs not just about musicians but also truckers and cowboys, cab drivers and ball players.

After two successful North American tours since last Fall, The Sean Burns Duo (featuring Kristopher Ulrich) is thrilled to take their 2015 EP Rocket Ships and Lemon Trees out for another spin. This is Sean Burns first visit back to B.C. since 2013, and will mark the Duo’s first shows west of Alberta.

“Try not to miss this show,” says Bozzini’s owner Emmanuel Asprakis. “It’ll be Sean’s third visit to Bozzini’s and, frankly, it’s been too long. He’s a fabulous entertainer, hilarious storyteller, and writes the sweetest, catchiest songs.”

Kristopher Ulrich, a fellow Winnipegger, will be featured on electric and acoustic lead guitar and Dobro, also showcasing some original material from his EP Moonshine.

The special guest opener is Chilliwack’s Jana Seale. Jana’s evocative delivery returns to the roots of the solo performer, reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez and the coffeehouses of times gone by. Inspired by open-tuning troubadour Nanci Griffith, Jana performs with warm, understated finger-style guitar.

Sean Burns Duo and Jana Seale perform Monday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 p.m.,  doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $17.50 at Bozzini’s (45739 Hocking Ave), or call 604-792-0744 to reserve by phone.
