The Capitol Theatre presents the Marc Atkinson Quartet as part of its season series this Saturday at 8 p.m.

The Marc Atkinson Trio performed in Nelson as part of the Capitol season in April of 2009 where the audience response was overwhelming. This new incarnation promises to be an evening to remember and is the first performance of the Capitol Theatre 2011-12 season.

Marc Atkinson is a multiple award-winning, world touring musician from Hornby Island. Don’t miss this chance to see his latest musical project, The Marc Atkinson Quartet.

Jurgen Goethe (CBC) described the renowned Marc Atkinson Trio as “solidly in the top ten of the world’s working trios.” The Bills, the virtuosic and exuberant folk quintet that Marc co-founded, burned a trail through North America and European music festivals and was arguably one of the best Canadian folk outfits of the last decade.

Together these two groups have seven acclaimed releases which garnered two Juno nominations and countless awards. Atkinson’s playing and composing have been described as “jaw dropping,” “stunning,” “dazzling,” “flawless, surprise-filled and sizzling.” Atkinson has performed at festivals from Celtic Connections in Glasgow, to the Montreal International Jazz Festival, to California WorldFest, to Tonder Festival in Denmark and even for the Queen of England.

Now, combining the best of both worlds, the Marc Atkinson Quartet has leapt to the stage with an all-star line up designed to thrill and amaze from concert hall to the festival mainstage.

Tickets are $20 adult and $16 full time student and are available at the Capitol box office. Charge by phone to 250-352-6363 or buy online at
