Musique Chez Nous concert series will welcome bassist and composer Fraser Hollins and his quartet on March 15 at 8 p.m. on the Centennial Theatre stage. The first guest in the student-run series from Bishop’s Music Department since the series was abruptly cancelled in February 2020, Hollins will present his second opus Treehouse with fellow jazzmen, American drummer Brian Blade, Joel Miller on saxophones, and Jon Cowherd on piano.
Originally from Ottawa, now based in Montreal, Hollins recorded Treehouse in 2016 and released the 11-tracks of original compositions in 2019. He now is preparing a Quebec and Ontario tour with his original bandmates following an extensive pandemic-imposed pause. The concert will feature music from Treehouse as well as some selections from his sophomore release, Aerials, and new material.
