For its fourth concert of the season, the Selkirk Pro-Musica concert series is proud to present Breakwater.

Based in Nelson, Breakwater is a four-piece band performing music from multiple genres. Drawing on their backgrounds in classical, Celtic, world and jazz music, they create a crossover style that is all their own.

Classical cellist Jeff Faragher meets Aurora Smith on fiddle and Rob Fahie on bass at the crossroads of traditional and modern music to form Breakwater. Together this trio spans genres and styles that rarely meet in such a harmonious place. Breakwater creates rich tones and fast-changing musical landscapes that bring the audience on a journey through time and across borders. Percussionist Ben Johnson joins the trio for this performance, providing driving rhythms and new perspectives.

Fun, flashy and entertaining music from traditional styles in addition to remixes of popular movie and TV soundtracks will engage the audience and even get them on their feet. Having performed at several festivals and venues in the interior such as MarketFest in Nelson and the Kaslo Jazz Festival in 2015, Breakwater has developed a reputation for entertaining audiences beyond expectation.

This concert on Monday, March 14 at 7:30 p.m. will be the final stop on Breakwater’s five-night tour of the East and West Kootenays. The Shambhala Music and Performance Hall at the Selkirk College 10th Street campus will provide an intimate and energetic venue to watch this dynamic quartet perform.
