Sat, Sep 2nd, 8-10pm, Concert – Brad Prevedoros - Guitar instrumentals - World, Contemporary, Jazz and Classical
Something happens when you combine fifty years of musical seasoning and the fingers of a magician. Something happens when you combine the soul of a classical musician, a world musician, and a jazz musician, with a dash of rainy west coast sensibility...and stir vigorously. Brad Prevedoros happens. “Stylistically speaking I might go from Bach to Latin to the Beatles," Prevedoros explains, "Then you can touch different people with different songs." Whether it's a special reception, a prestigious jazz festival, a world class theatre, or an intimate house concert, a Brad Prevedoros performance stays with you. It's an experience that simmers long afterwards, like a warm home-cooked meal. It's a sound that soothes your soul like a fine wine.

"Brad Prevedoros may be one of the most accomplished guitarists of our time, but he’s
much more than that. When his fingers touch the strings, it’s magic. The notes are more
than just notes they are expressions and feelings and stories that touch everyone. From
“Café Dezine” to “The Alchemist” Brad Prevedoros takes you on a journey with
seamless transitions through many moods. Songs that will become timeless treasures. A
sound that is unmistakably Brad Prevedoros."
- Brad Edwards, Bars n Bands / Play in Victoria.
"As a music critic I have heard some of the great guitarists- Paul Galbraith, Christopher
Parkening and a few others - so I knew the moment Brad Prevedoros touched the strings
that he far exceeded the expectations we bring to musicians who perform in public
spaces. Go listen to him live."
- Grant Hayter-Menzies, Black Press Group
“Often it seems Brad is working with more than the normal complement of fingers. Latin
rhythms tend to sneak in frequently. Sometimes, it's a progressive series of delicately
shaded chords; sometimes the music bubbles and fizzes like champagne, occasionally, a
suspicion of boogie woogie. Lovely stuff, and very listenable.”
- Patrick Brown, Island Tides
"Brad Prevedoros is a class act, both on and off the stage. He is the Jimi Hendrix of jazz
and world-infused classical music."
- James Kasper, Mighty Speck Records, Vancouver Island Music Awards.
