Freeman hosting CD release party at the Bridge

It happens this Friday at the Bridge Lounge in Courtenay at 7:30 p.m.

Canadian Folk Music Awards 2012 Instrumental Solo Artist of the Year Trent Freeman will have a rollicking party for his recently released jazz/folk CD Rock, Paper, Scissors.

It happens this Friday at the Bridge Lounge in Courtenay at 7:30 p.m.

Trent has just returned from a whale of a time touring in Europe with his Celtic/folk string quartet The Fretless and has arrived, breathless, in Toronto, for a concert before he heads back out here to the West Coast.

Coincidentally, Trent and The Fretless also won two more awards at the 2012 CFMAs two weeks ago for their recent CD Waterbound.  Those awards are Instrumental Group of the Year and Ensemble of the Year.

The Bridge will be hopping as Trent is joined by guitarist Jeff Drummond and his band, Sinistrio, fresh in from Calgary. Sinistrio’s drummer Jon May and pianist Steve Fletcher both played on Trent’s CD and are joining Trent on this CD release tour.

Sinistrio will release its brand new Christmas album Modern Xmas at the Bridge this Friday. The band will play its unique take on a few festive songs, material from a forthcoming original album (to be released in the spring) plus some old favourites from the previous two CDs.

Tickets for Friday’s Bridge gig are available at Long & McQuade, Bop City, Videos N More, at the door, or call Craig at 250-339-4249 to reserve.
