John Paul "J.P." Cormier is a Canadian bluegrass/folk singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. At the age of 5, JP began teaching himself to play the guitar. At 9, he won his first guitar competition against 30 other players 4 times his age. By his mid teens, he was playing a variety of stringed instruments, including the fiddle, mandolin and banjo. He recorded his first album of bluegrass instrumentals at 16, which led to 10 years of living and performing in the US. His time there included many memorable nights at the Grand Ole Opry with artists such as Waylon Jennings, Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, and Vince Gill. Since returning to Canada, J.P. has released over a dozen award-winning albums. His impressive body of work has earned him a loyal fan base, 13 East Coast Music Awards, and one Canadian Folk Music Award. This will be the Blackstone River Theatre debut for this amazingly talented musician – prepare to be blown away!
