A two-time Western Canadian Music Award nominated jazz group, The Hutchinson Andrew Trio, will be playing at the Fernie Arts Station on March 30 as the last performance as part of their Prairie Modern tour.

The Hutchinson Andrew Trio is a unique voice on the Canadian Jazz scene. Over the past eight years, this acoustic piano-based trio has been bringing their own Western Canadian sound, mixing contemporary swing, latin, and acoustic groove, to the Canadian jazz landscape. Comprised of bassist Kodi Hutchinson, CBC Galaxie Rising Star pianist Chris Andrew, and Canadian jazz star Karl Schwonik on drums, the trio is a two-time Western Canadian Music Awards nominee for Outstanding Jazz Recording.

Their third album, ‘Prairie Modern’, consists of 13 original tracks that are a reflection of the vast array of musical and personal influences growing up in Canada’s Prairies. Featuring special guests Grammy-nominated saxophonist Donny McCaslin and percussion master Rogério Boccato, ‘Prairie Modern’ represents the harmony, beauty, energy and excitement of the modern Canadian West.
