Get some Face Time with Jesse Peters Trio

Jazz group traverses a musical path of originals written over the past 10 years



The Harrison Festival Society presents the Jesse Peters Trio on Saturday, April 14 in the Harrison Memorial Hall. Peters and his combo performed at last year’s Harrison Festival Beach Stage, winning over the crowd with his amazing musicality and sense of humour. From their opening jazz numbers to their closing R&B and Hip Hop vibes they had the audience in the palm of their hands.

Jesse Peters has been a force in the Canadian music scene since 1998. While still in high school, he garnered rave reviews as a singer and songwriter from distinguished jazz artists Ingrid Jensen and Diana Krall. By the age of 21, his group, The Peters Drury Trio, had released two critically acclaimed recordings and toured extensively.

His newest recording, Face Time, is jazz-edged-soul, embracing a vocal driven mix of original and standard tunes filled with energy, innovation, scope, and range. From an ethereal falsetto that captures a fragility and depth of vocal colour to a cheeky commentary on our all-consuming digital world; from the classic swing Peters was known for with the Peters Drury Trio to energetic romps that pay tribute to Ray Charles and yes, the King of Pop himself, Peters has crafted a set of tunes that beg to be listened to with only the finest of wine, or indeed an excellent scotch, in hand.

In concert, Peters and his trio traverse a musical path of originals written over the past 10 years and classics that give wing to his vocal range.

Tickets are $22 and can be purchased by phone at 604-796-3664 or online or in person at the Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison, or Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart.
