Peggy Lee Band presents INVITATION
On Friday June 8, 2012 at Ironworks Studios, The Peggy Lee Band performs original music with intensity, emotion and beauty at the intimate Ironworks on the evening of Friday, June 8. New compositions by leader and cellist Peggy Lee will be presented alongside favourite repertoire written for this octet of fantastic Vancouver musicians.
The Peggy Lee Band was formed in 1998 as a vehicle for Peggy Lee's compositions and to improvise within these compositions. The band has released four CDs and toured nationally and internationally to critical acclaim. The band is comprised of local greats whose individual sounds and strengths are critical to the band's unique sound.
Since moving to Vancouver in 1989, the Toronto born cellist has become a major voice in the creative music community. Current projects besides the Peggy Lee Band include Ron Samworth's Talking Pictures, The Tony Wilson Sextet, Wayne Horvitz' Gravitas Quartet, a duo with Robin Holcomb, the string quartet Microcosmos, a new collaboration with Mary Margaret O'Hara called Beautiful Tool, Dave Douglas' Mountain Passages and the new music ensemble Standing Wave.
This music will be recorded at the Warehouse Studio in June for release on Drip Audio in the fall of 2012.
