Join Juno-nominated Saxophonist Ryan Oliver for a special evening of music by the great John Coltrane. Oliver, who was nominated for 2022's Western Canadian music Awards Jazz Musician of the Year, steeped his concept and artistry in the creative fires of Amsterdam, honed his craft in Toronto and realized his dream of joining thousands of saxophonists at crowded jam sessions for several years in the jazz metropolis of New York City before returning to BC and the natural beauty of Vancouver Island. For over 15 years, Oliver toured the world with legendary Canadian jazz group the Shuffle Demons along with preforming with a who's who of the Canadian jazz scene. His saxophone tone and musical world reflect the uniqueness of these scenes and his musical journey.
