Willy Gaw Quartet at The Handmade Shoppe

Saturday, April 22

THE WILLY GAW QUARTET will perform during the Acoustic Avenue Concert Series at The Handmade Shoppe in Salmon Arm on April 22.  The concert will be held at The Handmade Shoppe, 2090 10th Ave SW in the Old Canadian Tire building. This is Salmon Arm’s emerging venue for all of the lovers and listeners of great live music.

The Willy Gaw Quartet is Richard Owings on Violin, Bill Lockie on Stand-up Bass, Jordan Dick on Lead Guitar and Willy Gaw on Rhythm Guitar. Based out of Salmon Arm these four musicians have been playing together off and on for a few years now and what they play is Gypsy Jazz.  

Inspired by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli and the Quintette of the Hot Club of France; who were the front runners of this genre in the 1930’s and more recently by Gonzalo Bergara, Stochelo Rosenberg and others, the band plays for the fun of it all. 

The music is intoxicating, fast, rhythmic and constantly challenging. The kind of music you can dance to or sit back, tap your toes and get lost in. 

Tickets are $20 plus service fee of $1.50 on-line: https://acousticavenue.tickit.ca/events/2560-willy-gaw-quartet or at Acorn Music and The Handmade Shoppe. Show starts at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 6 pm.
