Halifax Blues-Rock power duo, Christine Campbell & Blake Johnston have been building a name for themselves, entertaining audiences with their soulful tone, 60's and 70s rock style guitar riffs and bewitching vocal harmonies; and opening for some big names, like Burton Cummings, Steve Earle & Bob Segar.
In 2021, they released their self-titled Album, Campbell & Johnston’s Black Market Band. This self produced recording, adds a touch of their old school rock influences with a modern twist on blues and soul. It earned them an award for Best Blues Album at the 2022 ECMAs and a Maple Blues Nomination. Then in 2023, Campbell’s home province showed their support for her, with the Music PEI award “Rooted to the Island Award”!

I have attached 2 YouTube videos below of Campbell and Johnston for you to check out. Teresa, Roger Scharbach, myself and my daughter Amy all really enjoyed this act when we saw them at the Maple Blues Summit in June of 2022 in Toronto. Here is the brief write up that I wrote for the SBS Exec. while watching them perform “11:30pm CAMPBELL & JOHNSTON: Halifax NS, very high energy, duo listening act. Very BIG sound for a duo and acoustic. great acoustic pickers. Christine has an excellent voice and is a great picker. They got a standing “O”. After the show my daughter Amy, who was in attendance, said, “that was a goosebump performance Dad!!” “
