The Speakcheasy, Barrie
Joe Poirier is a guitarist / singer / songwriter / teacher who originally hails from Cape Breton Island and now resides in Toronto. While growing up with a heavy dosage of Cape Breton Fiddle music, Joe stumbled upon 50’s Rock ‘n’ Roll music through his parents. His father, an accomplished fiddle player himself, introduced Joe to whatever instruments that were around the household. By age 12, he settled on the guitar and started learning some of the Rock ‘n’ Roll music he enjoyed, which led him to the discovery of Blues music. A musical true love that still goes on to this day.
At the moment Joe is still doing what he always has done, touring, writing, recording and teaching. These days you may find him performing with many different groups, playing a variety of instruments, doing what needs to be done — play good music.
