Sunday matinee with Paul Pigat at Tractorgrease in Chilliwack

Paul Pigat is blessed with a jazz man’s sheen, a rockabilly heart and a hobo’s soul

It’ll be a cozy Sunday matinee at Tractorgrease with musician Paul Pigat.

You’d never think it to look at Pigat, but behind that unassuming grin and underneath those Doc Watson glasses lurks one of the most restless, combustible musical imaginations ever crammed like so much canned heat into a single body.

Blessed with a jazz man’s sheen, a rockabilly heart and a hobo’s soul, there aren’t many genres of music that don’t pull at Pigat’s wayfaring imagination like a magnet.

In many ways, it’s a mystery why he isn’t a household name yet. Maybe he’d be a lot easier to pin down if he wasn’t so darn good at so many different things.

Paul Pigat performs Sunday Dec. 1 at 1 p.m. at Tractorgrease Cafe (48710 Chilliwack Lake Rd.). Doors open at 12 p.m.

Tickets $20 and available at eventbrite.ca. Online ticket sale ends at 5 p.m. — call to check if there are seats still available at 604-858-3814.
