GALEN WESTON Plugged In! November 13

GALEN WESTON Plugged In! Friday, November 13th. 8 pm doors, 9 pm concert. $15 advance @ Eventbrite. $20 door. Freelton’s own GALEN WESTON returns for a debut Hamilton performance. Fueled by jazz and rock guitarists such as Mike Stern, Wes Montgomery, andGalen2 Mark Knopfler, the record showcases his formidable guitar talents in the company of some of finest cross-genre musicians in Canada: David Woodhead (fretless bass), Al Cross (drums), Matt Horner (piano & keyboards), Richard Underhill (alto sax) and Rick Shadrach Lazar (percussion); as well as a guest appearance by Prague-born vocalist Lenka Lichtenberg.
Plugged In represents a two-year journey of writing and recording across a vast musical territory. It’s a sonic and personal exploration with my Yellow Stratocaster, ES-335 and other instruments. The album is the culmination of many hours ….. in the simple yet enduring search of great tones,” says Weston.

“… beautifully written and warmly performed … What he calls influences and styles are really his own colors on his sonic palette. ~ Travis Rogers, JazzTimes
