Clinton Swanson and Rob Fahie play Food Pantry benefit concert

Swanson’s warm but sassy saxophone and Fahie’s beautiful, full-bodied soulful tone will make vibrant, collaborative music.

The duo Clinton +1 (saxophonist Clinton Swanson and acoustic bassist Rob Fahie) will give a public performance on Thursday, November 7 at St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral (701 Ward Street) at 7:30 p.m.

Original works and classic tunes, all with a jazz flavour, will colour the evening, slated as a fundraiser for the St. Saviour’s Food Pantry. Swanson’s warm but sassy saxophone and Fahie’s beautiful, full-bodied soulful tone will make vibrant, collaborative music.

Swanson, who picked up his first saxophone at age 11, grew up in the Slocan Valley and graduated from Mt. Sentinel High School. He attended the Selkirk College music school and eventually moved to Vancouver to further his musical education. He worked in the music industry there for 17 years before returning to Nelson.

Fahie grew up in Ottawa and has toured extensively throughout the world, playing at many international jazz festivals and concert venues including Carnegie Hall before moving to Nelson.

Together Swanson and Fahie, as the duo Clinton +1, add a new dimension to local jazz.

The Food Pantry, located in the basement of St. Saviour’s Anglican Church, is open to those in need every Friday from 9 to 11 a.m. For further information, please call 250-352-9871.
