Dylan Farrell is a born guitarist whose playing displays a level emotional maturity and a technical depth and dexterity that is truly remarkable for someone only in his mid-twenties. Originally from Minto, New Brunswick, and began his professional career playing in his father’s band in Saint John at the age of 15. Upon moving to Edmonton in 2012, he almost instantly became a fixture in the city’s thriving roots and blues scene, lending his consummate skill as a sideman to several acts, and hosting a weekly blues jam at the Have Mercy Southern Table and Bar.
Having solidified a sterling reputation through these side projects, Dylan is now placing his focus on his own musical voice. With his band, the Dylan Farrell Band, he is a two-time winner of the Memphis Bound Blues Challenge, and semi finalist at the 2018 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.
