Ten years later, Jesse Peters returns to wow Nakusp with jazz

Renown jazz artist Jesse Peters is returning to the Nakusp stage and closing out the Arrow Lakes Arts Council concert series.

If you were lucky, you may have caught Jesse Peters performance in Nakusp in the Peters Drury Trio over ten years ago. If not, you’ve got another chance this April. Renown jazz artist Jesse Peters is returning to the Nakusp stage and closing out the Arrow Lakes Arts Council concert series with his group the Jesse Peters Trio.

In concert Jesse and his trio traverse a musical path of originals written over the past ten years and classics that give wing to his vocal range. The trio is audience engaging and musically captivating.

“The style and flair of this young cat, coupled with a polished song writing sense, ensures that we’ll be hearing an awful lot about Jesse Peters if there is any justice in the world,” wrote Jordan Richardson at Blogcritics.org.

Jesse has been a force in the Canadian music scene since 1998. While 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.

Under the name of funk/soul artist Paramedic, Jesse’s CD, Love, Doubts and Soul was nominated Urban Recording of the Year at the 2009 Western Canadian Music Awards.

Jesse’s newest album, Face Time, recorded live-off-the-floor at Edmonton’s Winspear Centre embraces a vocal driven mix of original and standard tunes filled with energy, innovation, scope and range.

So, come and join us on Friday, April 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Bonnington Arts Centre as we celebrate the world of jazz. The tickets are available at the Bon Marche/Dollar Store until Friday afternoon at 3 p.m., then at the door the evening of the concert.  Door will open at 7:00 p.m.

The Arrow Lakes Arts Concert would like to thank K 2 Rotor Lodge for hosting our artists. The Arts Council would also like to acknowledge the Nakusp Senior Citizens Association, Branch 71 and Corrine Tessier & Bob Toews for co-sponsoring this concert.
