Genge comes home for holidays

In the final Sunday afternoon of jazz at Crofton before Christmas, acclaimed pianist Tony Genge brings an all-star trio

In the final Sunday afternoon of jazz at Crofton before Christmas, acclaimed pianist Tony Genge, home in Victoria for the holidays, brings an all-star trio to the Crofton Hotel Pub on Sunday, Dec. 20.

Genge, a music professor at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, will perform with guitarist Andrew Janusson and drummer Hans Verhoeven.

Genge returns to the Island regularly during his vacations to perform extensively at various venues with a variety of local musicians, organizers say.

In the past 20 years, the style and influences in his music have become increasingly diverse and he can be heard on his critically acclaimed jazz trio recording, Blues Walk.

The concert will be held at the Crofton Hotel pub from 2 to 5 p.m. Musicians are invited to join in a jam session during the last hour.

Admission is $10.
