SAM KIRMAYER: “HIGH AND LOW” CD RELEASE
September 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT$15
Sam Kirmayer, jazz guitarist, composer and native Montrealer, is a young musician who plays with “a fearlessness and momentum that promise much, much more to come” – Katie Malloch (CBC Jazz Beat & Tonic). Drawing inspiration from masters like Wes Montgomery and Grant Green, Sam eschews effects in favour of a clear, direct tone and maintains firm roots in the blues and hard bop traditions. Sam has performed with some of Canada’s finest musicians including André White, Joel Miller, Mike Rud and Kevin Dean, who has praised him for his “excellence, honesty and power of emotion.” In 2017, CBC Music included Sam in their list of the “35 best Canadian jazz musicians under 35”.
Sam will be joined by Ben Paterson (piano) & Dave Laing (bass)
