“Patterson…a perfectionist with a big, round and dominating sound that turns every tune into a stimulating experience.” – The Toronto StarCatching the tail end of the 1960s provided Nova Scotia born guitarist Roy Patterson a broad palette of musical styles to draw from. After touring Atlantic Canada in dance bands during the 1970s, he made the move to Toronto and since then performed with many of Canada’s elite. His style has drawn comparisons with some of the most respected guitarists in North America, and his playing has taken him to Finland, Istanbul, Italy, Taiwan and the U.S.A.
Roy won the coveted Prix de Jazz at Montreal’s Festival International Jazz Festival and we are honored to have him perform in our series.
ABOUT THE “LIVEStream.LOVE.JAZZ.Series”
“We love organically grown events and this series is a prime example of that. In January of 2019, we started a series called “IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD” when local jazz pianist Doug Mundy asked us if we could store his Steinway grand piano at our Shady Acres Studio. We knew how our jazz fans LOVE the intimate concerts so we thought why not do one ‘In our own back yard’.
The first 4-part piano series was a huge success so we then decided to add another 4 shows and then another 2! 10 shows in total for 2019 and when the piano was removed we decided to continue with a guitar series. Part 4 of the guitar series came during the COVID-19 pandemic so we decided to adapt to the times. Our NEW live-streamed events are now in YOUR own backyard. ‘From our back yard to yours’
To align with our tag line: LIVE LOVE JAZZ and the current situation, we have re-branded our series to be called the “LIVEStream.LOVE.JAZZ.Series”.
We do look forward to having our guests gather in our backyard again soon (when it is safe to do so) but until then we are thrilled to be able to live-stream our events and to keep the music alive in Niagara and beyond”
