Performer of the Week: Mike Allen (Guitar Case Mike)

Burlington boy, Mike Allen aka Guitar Case Mike, is a master of acoustic folk blues. His music combines deep-down folk music vocals, a bit of boogie, and the old delta blues of Robert Johnson and Leadbelly.

Throughout the years, this talented musician has played in Canada and the US. He performed in rock groups but has since returned to his acoustic roots.

On occasion, he teams up with bassist Bill Douglas as the Acoustic Boogie Duo.

In 2003, Mike released the CD, Blues, Boogie and Roots. He took classic folk/blues forms and added his own unique spin.
