Tri-Continental is a collaborative evolution that fuses the talents of three wonderful guitar-players, singers and songwriters. There are no musical boundaries present in this one-of-a-kind blues/folk/world music mélange.

Bill Bourne, Lester Quitzau and Madagascar Slim present a truly unique and critically acclaimed sound that is a great success in terms of soulfulness and presence, intensity and atmosphere.

Bourne, Quitzau and Slim are in their own rights well-recognized and respected artists with successful solo careers. They are indeed major players in the Canadian roots music scene who have individually and collectively received 4 Juno awards and 10 nominations. Together as Tri-Continental, something very special and magical happens with the grand improviser, the kidnapper of the blues, and the inventor and promoter of the new universal sound.

Tri-Continental is an engagement between artists and friends built on artistic respect and a deep passion for, and knowledge of the blues. This is clearly evident in the music they create, where the sharing and curiosity has led them on a fascinating musical exploration resulting in a beautiful, infectious sound where blues, world, Celtic, folk, flamenco and African rhythms fuse into one. Accentuated by their sweet vocal harmonies and imaginative guitar playing, Tri-Continental's global blues and roots music is a testament to faith, dreams, talent and, most of all, friendship.
