Troika Latin Jazz Trio is René Lavoie playing saxophones and flute, Tim Bedner on 7-string guitar, and multi-percussionist René Fortier.

The trio explores a wide range of repertoire from the Great American Songbook to classic and contemporary jazz compositions, in addition to some of the finest composers from Brazil and Cuba. Troika really grooves and you just might want to get up and dance! This is a FREE concert.
Normand Glaude (bass & harmonica), Tim Bedner (guitar), Scott Latham (vibraphone)
Normand will delight you with his bass and harmonica playing as he shares new arrangements from his upcoming album as well as some favourite standards. Impeccable accompaniment provided by guitarist Tim Bedner and vibraphonist Scott Latham.
Vocalist Gerri Trimble's sound could be described as direct, emotive and personal - influenced by the great jazz singers she loves such as Carmen McRae, Sheila Jordan and Nancy Wilson - but also by blues and classic country. After a bit of time as a musical nomad, Gerri found her way to jazz in Ottawa where she has been lucky enough to perform with many talented instrumentalists. A musical outing with Gerri promises a lot of humour, a bit of adventure, and a mix of well-loved and rarer (mostly) jazz tunes.
