Dixieland & Swing:CanUS Jazz Band: Special Guest Patrick Boyle
Sun. February 18th 2018 3 pm - 6 pm doors at 2 pm (All Ages)
Once in a while members of CanUS are away and we have the fun of adding a guest who we also enjoy playing with very much. Today will be a special day for CanUS with the addition of Patrick Boyle on trumpet. Patrick is well known in his position as Assoc. Professor(Jazz Studies) at U. Vic School of Music. But his love of traditional jazz goes way back and he authentically represents the best of that early New Orleans music all presented with a Newfoundland joie de vivre you will love. He appears on over 50 commercial releases and also 3 acclaimed solo albums. PLUS:(where does he get the time???) Patrick is currently writing a book documenting the history of jazz music in his native Newfoundland. Also we will have Don Cox anchoring us on bass so a day of high quality musicianship and of course there is that dance floor!
