Tuesday November 1st Montreal Guitar Trio
Described by the CBC as the “hottest” guitar ensemble in Canada, MG3 has quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with, as well as an interactive force in various musical forms. The trio, composed of guitarists Marc Morin, Sébastien Dufour and Glenn Lévesque, has given hundreds of concerts in some of the most prestigious venues across North America, Europe, New Zealand and Australia, including the BB King Blues Club in New York, the Rundetårnet in Copenhagen, and the legendary Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Winner of the 2011 Opus Award for “concert of the year” in the Jazz / World Music category, MG3 has released six albums.
Bringing this group to Fanny Bay is truly a coup for us, and will be an evening to remember.
Tickets $25 in advance ($27 at the door)
Saturday November 12th Deja Blue
Local musicians, Bill Street and Friends present “Musicals Make Great Jazz”. Hear what jazz has done to some of the greatest songs from popular musicals. Some of the finest swing tunes and ballads in jazz come from Musicals. Well known composers like Gershwin, Berlin, Kern and Rogers have given the Jazz world fodder to chew on for decades. Others, like Bacharach have added a new style and even musicals like The Sound of Music have added one of the most famous jazz waltzes by way of “My Favourite Things”. Every jazz musician brings their own inter- pretation of the classics from the repertoire of the Mu- sicals and this show will feature the group’s own vocal and instrumental versions.
Tickets $15 in advance ($17 at the door)
Tickets for all shows will be available at Weinberg’s Good Foods, Laughing Oyster Books, Courtenay, and Salish Sea Market in Bowser, in mid- August. Prices will range from $15 to $25, depending on the show, with a $2 surcharge for tickets bought at the door, so buy early!
