Keith Hartshorn Walton - tuba
Steve Boudreau - keyboard
Alex Moxon - guitar
Multi-instrumentalist Keith Hartshorn-Walton established himself in Ottawa’s jazz scene specializing in tuba and sousaphone, as well as acoustic and electric bass. He is introducing this new and unique combination of tuba, piano and guitar, featuring a blend of jazz-infused pop classics, collective improv and overall melodicism alongside two of Ottawa’s finest jazz musicians, Alex Moxon and Steve Boudreau. A particular focus of this project is to feature the tuba as a melodic jazz instrument outside of its traditional accompanying role. In this, Keith is following the example of his mentor, Howard Johnson, for whom he performed at a gala tribute concert in New York City in 2019.
*The Shed is located on Sparks St. between O'Connor and Bank St.
