$20 tickets will be available through the Grand Theatre box office. (613-530-2050)
Dave Young is one of Canada’s most recognized jazz musicians. The three- time JUNO award-winner and Officer of the Order of Canada continues to teach, play, and record. Young is well known for his three-decade professional relationship with jazz giant Oscar Peterson, during which he toured around the world as a online casino sign up member of the Oscar Peterson Trio.
Hungarian-born Botos, raised in a musical family and largely self-taught, is deemed by many to be a worthy successor to Peterson. His dynamic performances have earned him international recognition – winning competitions in Montreux and Paris.
Young and Botos opened our 2011 Live @ Your Library concert series. For this performance, they will be joined by guitarist Rob Piltch, who studied guitar in turn with Eli Kassner, Tony Bradan, Hank Monis, and Robert Hamilton. After working in Toronto jazz clubs with Ted Moses and others and touring across North America with David Clayton-Thomas and Blood, Sweat and Tears, Piltch began his studio career while also appearing in club or concert engagements with Hagood Hardy, Ron Collier, Lorne Lofsky, Hugh Marsh, Don Thompson, and others.
