This is a busking event. No reservation is required, just come down and enjoy the music!
Martine Courage - vocals, piano
Rob Frayne - bass
Laura Nerenberg - violin, vocals
Mike Essoudry - drums
Courage4 plays off-the-wall arrangements of funk, pop and folk-infused jazz standards, originals and traditional songs. The quartet features Martine Courage’s creative, sometimes lush vocals and stripped back piano stylings, Laura Nerenberg’s nimble and warm violin tones, Rob Frayne’s jazzy harmonic bass (and sometimes tenor sax) and Mike Essoudry’s groovy and inventive drumming. The group just released its debut CD, Things Are Looking Up!, a 9-track album with horns, and is excited to present music from the CD as well as some new material at the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival.
*The Shed is located on Sparks St. between O'Connor and Bank St.
