IMC Festival of the Arts Performance – The Keith Price Quartet
June 23, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Keith Price Quartet
A tribute to the funky-swingin’ jazz music of the 1960’s featuring Greg Gatien on Saxophone, Keith Price on Guitar, John Baron on Bass, and Eric Platz on Drums.
Beginning on his grandfather’s old guitar, Keith Price was first influenced by pop music, punk rock, and heavy metal before discovering jazz at age fifteen. Price began his formal studies at The Conservatory of Amsterdam and upon returning to Winnipeg, turned down a scholarship from The New School in New York City and instead, opted to study with local jazz guitar guru Larry Roy as part of Steve Kirby’s newly established jazz program at The University of Manitoba. Price is now enjoying an inspiring period of musical growth while studying at Brandon University with internationally recognized pianist and composer Michael Cain.
Keith Price has released six albums; Double Quartet (2017), Live at 101.5 UMFM (2015), The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (2015), Solo Guitar (2013), Gaia/Goya (2011), and Breakfast of Champions (2009).
