Today, tickets go on sale for perhaps the most exciting and challenging concert I have ever done!! That is a brave statement to make isn’t it?…but I have the privilege of performing with two of the best virtuoso’s on the planet…seriously…so who wouldn’t be excited and challenged ? :).
Over the last 3 years both Eugene Friesen and Premik Russell-Tubbs, in their unique ways, have given me the guidance and courage to explore new musical territories and push the boundaries of my own creativity and musicianship. A week long emersion into the art of improvisation with Eugene, had a direct influence (albeit a year later) on the work I am presenting in February. And Premik has more than once, had the confidence in me (and his own ability) to give me no choice but play something with him that I didn’t plan, on stage and with little or no warning…Two very different approaches that have been invaluable to me.
When they both confirmed that they were free to play this concert (which honestly is almost a miracle), I wanted to give them a spotlight for their own ‘stuff’ along with my new collection…so…in short, you do not want to miss this event!! If you are anywhere on the east coast, free on Saturday Feb 7th and want to hear some REALLY really cool music, then get a ticket now…www.heidibreyer.com or http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/964604.
