Fans of blues music in Vancouver are still mourning the loss of the Yale.
It was more than two years ago when the iconic blues club at the end of Granville Street – with the big neon saxophone sign outside – closed its doors. The owners promised to rebuild and reopen, but now all that’s left is a For Lease sign in the window.
It’s never been easy to find great live blues music in Vancouver, and since the Yale closed it’s gotten even harder. But I know there must be a few options left out there, which is why I need your help.
