Have a jazzy night out with the Marc Atkinson Trio this weekend

May 11 hear the JUNO-nominated musicians play at Cove Commons

Jazz up your weekend on May 11 with some really great music. The Hearth presents the Marc Atkinson Trio – Gypsy Jazz Concert at the Cove Commons. From the further shores of Hornby Island, these fine musicians will dazzle us with their award-winning talents and lively tunes. 

Marc Atkinson is one of Canada’s finest JUNO-nominated, Western Canadian award-winning musicians. He is 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, sensually charged and ferociously, technically awe-inspiring. Embracing a lifetime of musical influences, Marc and the Trio have just released their fourth album, The Marc Atkinson Trio IV, praised as the finest yet. The Trio, formed in 2000, has toured North America, England and Europe and has received standing ovations everywhere they perform from the Montreal Jazz Festival to the Vancouver International Folk Festival to DjangoFest Northwest
