CANCELLED -The Sam Wilson Band
Friday November 27, 2020  8pm

Presented by Music In Communities Co-op

The Small Shows in Big Spaces Series brings guitarist Sam Wilson and her band to the Whittle for an afternoon workshop and evening performance.

With a lyrical sensitivity to her instrumental compositions, her music draws listeners in with subtlety and introspective levity. Bringing a distinctive angle to her jazz-informed arranging, she creates nuanced space for improvisation and discovery, all framed by her compelling melodicism.

Sam Wilson introduces her band:
Guitarist and bandleader Sam Wilson will be performing music from her 2019 release ‘Groundless Apprehensions’ as well as new repertoire she worked on during a residency at the Banff Centre For Arts and Creativity last fall. Painting pictures with sound, her compositions reflect her love of jazz, improvised and instrumental music. Joining her are Andrew Jackson, Pat Reid and Andrew Miller.
Andrew Jackson is an acclaimed Juno-nominated, ECMA award winning, trombonist and composer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His versatility and unique sound have made him one of the Maritimes first-call players. He is an artist constantly exploring new sounds and not afraid to blend genres. Andrew holds a Bachelor of Music from Humber College, where he had the opportunity to study with some of the finest musicians in the country.
Pat Reid originally from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island is a double bassist and composer. He has been an active member of the Canadian and International creative music community for the past two decades playing with a wide range of acclaimed musicians. After completing a degree in jazz performance at McGill University in 2005, Patrick was based in Montreal, Toronto, and finally Brooklyn, New York, he is presently based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
