Thick as Thieves hits the Revelstoke Jazz Club

Thick as Thieves play their imaginative blend of jazz, blues, folk and world music at the Revelstoke Jazz Club on Friday, Feb. 19.

Salmon Arm group Thick as Thieves is at the Revelstoke Jazz Club this Friday

The music will be all over the place on Feb. 19 when Thick as Thieves play their imaginative blend of jazz, blues, folk and world music at the Revelstoke Jazz Club.

The quartet features Richard Owings on five-string violin and arrangements, Jordan Dick on guitar, Blair Shier on guitar/bass and Larry Keats on drums.

A principal inspiration for the group is the distinctive work of American composer and guitarist Bill Frisell. The quartet performs its own original versions of choice Frisell compositions and arrangements, plus new tunes written by band members.

Of special interest are the band’s covers of the Beatles’ Strawberry Fields and Julia, in fresh instrumental settings.

Owings is well- known to audiences for his work with the folk/Celtic band Birchbark and for his many performances in various Gypsy swing bands led by Willy Gaw.

Dick and Shier gig frequently in the Salmon Arm area, sometimes as a guitar duet, sometimes as part of Sunday’s Cool. Owings, Dick and Shier have been featured players in the acclaimed Django Gypsy jazz shows at Shuswap Theatre. Dick also serves as the artistic director for the Salmon Arm Jazz Society. Keats plays drums with the Salmon Armenians. All members of Thick as Thieves are active as music teachers and educators.

The Rebvelstoke Jazz Club takes place in the Selkirk Room of the Regent Hotel on Friday, Feb. 19. Doors open at 7 p.m.
