Do You Like Jazz?

It has been almost a year since we visited Boston and our friends, Ivonne Hernandez and Ben Powell at the Berklee College of Music. A lot has happened since then with graduations, prize winnings and tours...

Most recently, Ivonne won the London Fiddle Convention competition in England - bringing home another Gold Medal for Canada right around the same time the hockey boys and girls did!
Ben, whose 2009 EPK (musician speak from Electronic Press Kit) features some photos from Ryan MacDonald Photography, recently released an updated version (below). It gives you an inside view on his style, inspirations and the influence on his wonderful playing. One of the best jazz violinists out there, he is also a fabulous person. His Canadian tour dates for this coming summer are yet to be announced but keep your eyes peeled because this is something you shouldn't miss.

Congrats to both Ivonne and Ben for having such a successful year!
