Brockville Arts Centre Presents:
THE DUNCAN HOPKINS QUARTET… playing The Canadian Songbook

Double bassist, composer and arranger Duncan Hopkins has been working at the highest levels of jazz for almost thirty years. He’s worked with such luminaries as Norma Winstone, Rob McConnell, Scott Hamilton, Houston Person, Peter Appleyard, Ed Bickert, Mark Murphy, Bobo Stenson, Diana Krall, Sheila Jordan, Kenny Wheeler, Bobby Watson, Sam Rivers, Harry Allen and Edward Simon to name a few. Duncan was a member of Rob McConnell and the Boss Brass and the highly distinguished Canadian Jazz Quartet for ten years before moving to Europe.

Reg Schwager is one of Canada’s most acclaimed jazz guitarists. Over the course of his 40-year career, he has played with such notable musicians as Peter Appleyard, Diana Krall, Mel Tormé, Chet Baker, Rob McConnell and Oliver Jones. Schwager was named Guitarist of the Year at the National Jazz Awards four years in a row (2005-08) and was made a Member of the Order of Canada in 2021.

Ted Quinlan is respected as one of Canada’s elite guitar players.  He has played with such jazz greats as Chet Baker, Freddie Hubbard, Jimmy Smith, Joey DeFrancesco, Michael Brecker, Dave Holland, Maria Schneider and Dave Liebman. His debut CD “As If” received a Juno nomination for Contemporary Jazz. It was followed by “Streetscape” which features him in a trio setting and “Around the Bend”, a duo collaboration with piano great Brian Dickinson. Ted is a dedicated educator and was the head of the guitar program at Humber College for 25 years. Lesley Mitchell-Clark, writing for Whole Note Magazine, says of his album Absolutely Dreaming, “seldom is one blessed to experience a jazz project of such luminosity.”

Ted Warren was the last drummer with Rob McConnell’s famed The Boss Brass and can be heard on six of their recordings, including Velvet and Brass (with Mel Torme), From Lush to Lively (with Oliver Jones), Even Canadians Get The Blues, and The Boss Brass Plays the Jazz Classics. Ted has worked with many of the world’s most acclaimed performers including Slide Hampton, Sonny Greenwich, Maynard Ferguson, Lew Soloff, Chuck Mangione, Jeff Healey, Norma Winstone, Sheila Jordan, Howard Johnson, Nick Brignola, Kenny Wheeler, and George Bergonzi. He has toured extensively in Poland, South Korea, Spain, Brazil, Iceland, and Japan.

Don’t miss this chance to see these jazz musicians at the top of their game.
