Roddy Ellias, Andrew Downing, Petr Cancura
TREKAN - Vinyl Download
Well known in the Canadian music scene, Andrew Downing, Roddy Ellias and Petr Cancura each have a strong musical identity… a unique voice. Andrew Downing is a well respected composer, a bassist and cellist from Toronto. The way Andrew sees music intertwines many genres from Chamber music to jazz to folk music. Roddy Ellias is one of Canada’s legendary jazz guitarists but is also well established in the New Music scene. Striving for beauty Roddy embodies these two worlds in his playing and composing. Petr Cancura is a multi-instrumentalist well versed in bluegrass, folk, jazz and improvised music out of which he has created his own voice, his own stories to tell. What all three musicians share is a thrill of the search for something authentic and real. This meeting in the hills of the Gatineau Hills recorded in a beautiful sounding, wood-laced studio by Ross Murray is available for your enjoyment.
