Music by Marc Atkinson Trio to fill Chilliwack Cultural Centre theatre

Trio pushes boundaries of guitar playing with technically demanding, rhythmically pulsing music

Music played by a Canadian string trio will fill the Chilliwack Cultural Centre theatre next month.

The Marc Atkinson Trio takes to the stage with their melodically captivating and technically awe-inspiring performance on Feb. 4.

After more than two decades of musical output, Marc Atkinson is both incredibly unique and readily identifiable. He is first and foremost a masterful acoustic guitarist who combines lyricism, rhythmic precision and technical mastery into a distinctive guitar voice.

Atkinson’s significant talents further define that voice as a composer of lush and melodic original works.

Atkinson is backed by Joey Smith on bass and Brett Marten on rhythm guitar.

They push the boundaries of guitar playing through technically demanding, melodic and rhythmically pulsing music.

Through original compositions as well as impressive rearrangements, the compositions that the Marc Atkinson Trio brings to the stage glide seamlessly from raucous rhythm to unusual beauty.

As one of Canada’s most talented musicians, Marc Atkinson has taken the guitar beyond the usual repertoire and sound, infusing his compositions with a catchy blend of influences while maintaining an elegant and distinct guitar style.

The Marc Atkinson Trio is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Feb. 4 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults, $32 for seniors and $30 for youth, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
