Lenny Chet Breau
You know the saying – “Like father, like son”. Well, Chet Breau is a good example of that. He grew up learning the guitar with his father, legendary guitarist Lenny Breau, and became himself one of the most remarkable guitarists in Manitoba. Mastering a wide range of different styles (jazz, flamenco, country, blues, fingerstyle guitar), he spends his time teaching and hosting radio shows, when he’s not doing studio sessions and live performances.
Ron Paley Quartet
It wouldn’t be exagerrated to say that Ron Paley has been a major figure of Winnipeg’s music landscape for the past 40 years. He’s also a central figure of Mardi Jazz since its beginning in the late 1980’s. The composer, arranger, pianist, electric bassist and big-bang leader will be playing on February 5 with Julian Bradford, Curtis Newton and Rob Siwik.
These four talented musicians (Gilles Fournier, Murray Pulver, Daniel Roy, Marc Arnould) came together to form one of the funkiest, grooviest bands in town – it’s an original, explosive musical cocktail that will have you dancing for sure.
No Mardi Jazz on February 19 because of the Festival du Voyageur. Check out what’s happening at the CCFM!
