About the Artist(s)

Juno-nominated Saxophonist Ryan Oliver steeped his concept and artistry in the creative fires of Amsterdam, honed his craft in Toronto and realized his dream of joining thousands of saxophonists at crowded jam sessions for several years in the jazz metropolis of New York City before returning to BC and the natural beauty of Vancouver Island. For over 15 years, Oliver toured the world with legendary Canadian jazz group the Shuffle Demons along with performing with a who’s who of the Canadian jazz scene. His saxophone tone and musical world reflect the uniqueness of these scenes and his musical journey.  This concert is a special evening featuring Oliver’s quartet with a string quartet to celebrate the release of “Ryan Oliver With Strings” on the Cellar Music label

With Tony Genge on piano, Ken Lister on bass, and Hans Verhoeven on drums
