Roy Forbes

Born in Dawson Creek, B.C. and nicknamed Bim as a child, Roy Forbes has been a strong presence on the Canadian music scene since the early 70s as a performer, songwriter, recording artist, record producer and broadcaster. This two-time Juno nominee and multi West Coast Music Award winner has nine solo albums to his credit as well as two CDs with UHF (Ulrich Henderson and Forbes). It might be on the CBC or across a festival meadow, but you’ll always recognize the unique, intense guitar playing and the high soulful singing of Roy Forbes. He has absorbed all of his influences and developed into a totally original, dynamic, exciting performer of deeply resonant lyrics. Roy's much anticipated CD "Some Tunes for that Mother of Mine" was released in the spring.  After more than thirty years, Roy Forbes remains one of Canada’s favourite and best-loved acoustic artists.
