Marc Atkinson Trio
from Victoria BC
Ever popular and always dazzling, Victoria’s Marc Atkinson Trio continues to elicit national and international praise for their sizzling blend of post-Django gypsy jazz, Broadway show tunes and anything else that catches their fancy. No stranger to JazzFest, guitarist Marc Atkinson is equally well known on his own or in the frontline of those amazing acoustic music-meisters, The Bills. Atkinson has never been busier or more successful; as well as innumerable performance dates last year, there have been numerous awards and rave CD reviews. The trio will be releasing a highly anticipated new album this spring entitled Marc Atkinson Trio IV. This high-energy guitar star has accomplished the rare feat of developing an authentic and individual voice on his instrument and his name on the ticket is a surefire guarantee of superb music making.
