Trailblazing Canadian violinists, Andréa Tyniec, from the contemporary music world and Jesse Zubot, a genre-crossing composer-improviser; will showcase the range of this timeless instrument, performing an eclectic repertoire, with and without electronics, on February 1st at The Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.
These virtuoso violinists from different ends of the musical spectrum, in their first ever collaboration, will each perform a solo segment with their most iconic repertoire, then come together in the finale for a spirited duet of an original piece created specifically for the Almost Unplugged performance.
Primarily a violinist, Jesse Zubot is also a multi-instrumentalist and incorporates electronic manipulation and studio gadgetry in his work. He’s a multiple Juno Award-winning musician, and has collaborated extensively with Polaris Prize-winner Tanya Tagaq, producing, touring and recording with her. Zubot has created with artists from across genres, including Steve Reich, Peggy Lee, Hawksley Workman, and Mother Mother.
