About The Marc Atkinson Trio with Special Guest Cameron Wilson

a remarkable guitar player . . .innovative and dazzling” – Vancouver Province

They’re outstanding for their vitality, exuberance, elegance & melodic strength, and for the joy these three fine musicians share… Atkinson is a daring & inventive acoustic guitarist and a powerful force in the new roots/jazz movement.”- Toronto Star review

Marc Atkinson is one of Canada’s finest JUNO-nominated, Western Canadian award-winning musicians. He is the leader and composer of the internationally renowned Marc Atkinson Trio (and co-founder, composer and performer in the acclaimed, The Bills). The music of this virtuosic group is melodically captivating, sensually charged and ferociously, technically awe-inspiring. The music of the Marc Atkinson Trio good-naturedly welcomes all listeners aboard for an intriguing, exhilarating and unforgettable ride. Marc Atkinson is backed by Scott White on bass and Brett Martens on rhythm guitar.

Special guest, violinist Cameron Wilson is an artist whose works showcase the many genres of music he has become associated with both as a composer and performer. He is primarily known as an arranger and composer of both musical parody and criss-crossing musical genres. Cameron is currently a member of the classical crossover piano trio, Joe Trio, the acoustic string jazz quartet, Van Django, the Hard Rubber Orchestra, Mariachi del Sol, francophone trio Pastiche and Tambura Rasa.
