Kelowna Arts Council is proud to partner with The Marmalade Cat Cafe to bring you Live Music every Friday!
This week, we are pleased to feature Sean Bray!
Sean Bray is a well respected guitarist, composer and educator who has played with various artists on many diverse projects. While in New York, Bray studied at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music. Bray has played with and/or recorded with George Garzone, Pat LaBarbera, Bob Mintzer, Jon Faddis, Liberty Silver, Matt “Guitar” Murphy from the Blues Brothers, Mike Murley and Vincent Wolfe. He also composes for film and television and teaches at The Centre For Arts and Technology in Kelowna and has taught at The University of Guelph and The Toronto Film School. According to jazz guitar legend John Abercrombie, “Sean Bray is a real treat to listen to”. Possessing the ability to fit into many musical genres, while still retaining an unmistakably original voice on his instrument, has made him an in demand session player in Toronto. He also leads the popular Sean Bray’s Peach Trio. Bray is endorsed by PRS Guitars, Planet Waves and D’Addario strings. CBC Radio also named Bray as one of Canada’s top 50 guitarists of all time.
Joining Sean on stage will be local bassist, Bernie Addington!
Please stop by – the kitchen will be open and you can order your beverages and your supper/snacks from the café’s great selection of tasty offerings, and settle in to enjoy the show!
There is no greater gift to give performers than to simply sit and listen. We encourage a listening environment and thank everyone in advance for helping create a beautiful experience for all.
