Written by Terry Gillespie:
Homeboy is a celebration of my 70th birthday and 50 years of playing Blues Music as a career. In the midst of winter of 1968 I came home to Canada • my baggage was my amplifier and a superb musical education both formal and from the streets of Detroit. During my lifelong journey in quest of the roots of the music I love I have played with some of the best musicians in the land.
Homeboy is a live recording from The Granary Beizle in Vankleek Hill, Ontario during the course of the summer of 2016 with some of these beautiful musicians. My strongest belief is when everyone is in the band there will be no strife. Love TerryI
