Andrew Craig creates and performs original music, directs orchestras and musical productions, produces albums, radio, and television, and composes for theatre. He’s worked with artists such as Molly Johnson, Wynton Marsalis, Measha Bruggergosman and Jackie Richardson, opened for Bobby McFerrin, directed tributes to Oscar Peterson and Quincy Jones, and performed twice for Nelson Mandela. Various incarnations of the Andrew Craig Trio have toured several Ontario venues and festivals, and appeared on European television.
