Ravencourt welcomes the Clinton Swanson Trio

The third house concert of the season will be coming up at Ravencourt B&B in the Slocan Valley on Saturday, July 25 at 7 p.m.

The third house concert of the season will be coming up at Ravencourt B&B in the Slocan Valley on Saturday, July 25 at 7 p.m.

After touching on the Celtic, then ringing in the blues, it’s time for a little classic jazz when the Clinton Swanson Trio dropped by to bend some notes in  the courtyard of this straw bale B&B.

In the classic trio setting of drums, acoustic bass, and tenor saxophone the Clinton Swanson Trio pays tribute to the legendary jazz saxophonist Sonny Rollins.  Saxophonist Clinton Swanson has always been inspired by Sonny Rollins and will perform songs from Sonny’s famous repertoire of calypsos, originals, and jazz standards.  Joining Clinton will be Doug Stephenson on acoustic bass and Steven Parish on drums.

The Ravencourt concerts continue to be a popular summer pastime, so you can expect a pretty full house will be in attendance.  It’s recommended to come earlier and enjoy the ambience of Ravencourt before the music begins. Admission for these concerts (as always) is by donation with all proceeds going to the performers.

Ravencourt B&B is located at 4615 Upper Passmore  Rd. (www.ravencourtbandb.com). Turn off Highway 6 at Passmore, cross the bridge and follow the signs to pure musical enjoyment. It’s a windy drive down to this straw-bale B&B, but well worth the discovery. Refreshments will be available. For more information phone 250-226-7801.
