Xiodjiha

Tonight at 7pm (Monday, March 25th, 2019)

PWYC

Edwin Huet (electronics), Alex Fournier (bass)


Xiodjiha is a duo of double bass and live processing/electronics. Part of a series of concerts we're doing while my good friend Edwin Huet is visiting - the music takes on a vibe of a progressive echo, where each reflection furthers the music ad infinitum (or until we find a good ending).

Alex Fournier
With ensembles, projects and premiers in the Jazz, Creative Music and Contemporary Classical worlds, Alex Fournier is a double bassist with an interest in a vast array of musical challenges. Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Alex began his musical studies at the University of Toronto, studying his instrument under such Canadian masters as Dave Young, Andrew Downing and Jim Vivian. As well, he began studying composition under Andrew Downing and Phil Nimmons. Graduating with a Bachelor of Music with honors in 2011, Alex later attended both the Banff Creative Music Workshop and the SIM (School for Improvised Music) Workshop in 2013. Alex segued his time at SIM into a recurring internship (2015-16), as well as a position in the Peabody Conservatory's Jazz Performance program. Alex since has studied both performance and composition under Michael Formanek, as well as serving as an ensemble assistant for both his small and large ensembles. Alex graduate with a Graduate Performance Diploma in Jazz Performance in May of 2016.

Currently based in Toronto Ontario, but still maintaining a career in both Canada and the US, Alex has written and performed in a vast array of settings; including Alex Fournier's Triio (6tet), Money House (guitar trio), Gardening Club and Garden Party (chamber quartet/quintet), Xiodjiha (acoustic bass and electronics duo), and as a solo bass act, showcasing both contemporary classical premieres and his own improvised compositions.

Peter Boyd & Noah Zacharin

Peter Boyd & Noah Zacharin

Wednesday Night at 9pm (Wednesday, March 27th, 2019)

PWYC

Peter Boyd (guitar/voice), Noah Zacharin (guitar/voice)


Peter Boyd
Peter Boyd has been a songwriter for over thirty years. Drawing on gospel and blues from Chicago all the way back to the Delta and re-invented upside-down-and-backwards, Peter's songs are a sepia-tinged glimpse into his messy, not-fully-developed soul where faith has as much a chance as folly to send you careening into the abyss.

Peter's new CD 'Beulahland' is garnering great reviews, most recently a rave from Greg Quill in the Toronto Star - "stunning and powerful blues-rooted original songs and astonishing guitar wizardry. Among the best of the year's roots/blues crop."

Noah Zacharin
Noah Zacharin was born in Montreal and resides in Toronto. He was given his first guitar at age 9, wrote his first song at 13, began performing at 14, and is happy to say that he still loves playing music. He has been called "a wonderful songwriter and performer, and stunning guitarist" (Paul Mills, Borealis Records, Producer (Stan Rogers, Oscar Peterson), a "wonderful, adventurous guitarist" (Blues Bytes), "a poet, a songwriter, a singer we have been waiting for" (Penny Lang), "a great guitarist/singer/songwriter...a wonderfully musical player" (Randy Finney, President and Founder Toronto Fingerstyle Guitarist's Association), "in a league of his own" (Brian Gladstone, AD Winterfolk Festival), "one of the best songwriters this country has produced" (the late great Rick Fielding, recording artist, radio host) and "deserving to be mentioned in the same breath with names such as James Taylor and David Wilcox" (Minor 7th).

Zacharin's recordings have garnered praise from fans and critics alike. silence spoken here (1997) was called "an understated classic...musical versatility and lyrical depth" (Xpress-Ottawa); Scene Roots and Blues dubbed aLIVE! (2000) "a real gem"; and a review of crow dark wind (2001) in Minor 7th elicited the following: "like Bruce Cockburn, Ry Cooder, and Bonnie Raitt, Noah Zacharin possesses a virtuoso command of the guitar...world-wise songwriting."
