We are very excited for our first outdoor concert of 2020!
Come and enjoy some incredible Canadian musical magic in an outdoor festival style venue on Sunday, July 5, 2020.
Marc Atkinson is one of Canada’s finest JUNO-nominated, Western Canadian award-winning musicians. He is also the leader and composer of the internationally renowned Marc Atkinson Trio (and co-founder, composer and performer in the acclaimed, The Bills). The music of this virtuosic group is melodically captivating, emotionally charged, and ferociously, technically awe-inspiring. The trio is joined by special guest Cameron Wilson.
Marc Atkinson, a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and producer, is one of Canada's most talented musicians. His catchy compositions, found on the self-titled CDs I, II, III and IV take guitar beyond the usual repertoire and sound. The tunes have a fiery but elegant guitar style, infused with a catchy blend of influences. All this while still maintaining the laidback humour and casual 'good time feel' of Canada's West Coast. Atkinson's picking has been described as flawless, surprise-filled, sizzling and supremely melodic. His music is original, complex and challenging in its conception and delivery but remains accessible and absorbing. The music of the Marc Atkinson Trio good-naturedly welcomes all listeners aboard for an intriguing, exhilarating and unforgettable ride.
Cameron Wilson is an artist whose works showcase the many genres of music he has become associated with both as a composer and performer. He is primarily known as an arranger and composer of both musical parody and criss-crossing musical genres. Cameron is currently a member of the classical crossover piano trio, Joe Trio, the acoustic string jazz quartet, Van Django, the Hard Rubber Orchestra, Mariachi del Sol, francophone trio Pastiche and Tambura Rasa.
