For all lovers of marimba and world music:
Robin Layne Trio w/special guests Ivan Tucakov and Colin Maskell
9 pm - Cafe Duex Soleil - $10
I've been working on a new project that features my own music for marimba and we will putting on a little concert at one of my favourite venues on the drive, Cafe Deux Soleil. I am thrilled to be joined by Ben Brown on drums and Wynston Minckler on bass.
I am equally excited to share the bill with Ivan Tucakov - guitar, Colin Maskell - sax/flute and me (this time on percussion). We'll be playing music from around the world. Dancing will be encouraged. Hope to see you there!
And now to catch up:
I hope you've all had a good winter and are enjoying return of the sunshine - I know I am! That being said, I was lucky enough to get away to Mexico this winter with Locarno (see above photo) - we played a festival, ate tacos, learned more about the traditional music, and soaked in the sunshine. This summer we will be keeping busy playing festivals around B.C. Stay tuned for more updates on that. In the meantime, you can come check us out on May 16th at the Fan Club for any night owls out there. We go on at 11:30 and will keep you dancing all night long.
