The Sicilian Jazz Project featuring Pilar and Don Byron
David Lam Park Stage
Time 3:30 pm
A richly evocative melding of Sicilian folk, modern jazz, and chamber music, eight-time JUNO-nominated guitarist Michael Occhipinti “has crafted this music with uncommon perfection.” (All About Jazz)
With the magnificent and utterly captivating Franco-Italian vocalist Pilar, musically omnivorous New York clarinetist Don Byron, Louis Simao bass/accordion, and Mark Kelso drums, this is passionate, deeply felt music.
