If you are searching for that unique, fascinating and highly entertaining musical performance, look no further than singer-songwriter-pianist Jeffery Straker.
He will give two performances of his “88 Keys” show at the Auditorio de la Ribera Wednesday, March 21 – a matinee at 3 p.m. and an evening show at 7 p.m.
Straker is in constant demand as a performer, doing more than 100 shows a year across Canada, the United States and abroad. One of his music videos reached the top 10 in Canada.
Originally from Saskatchewan, the classically trained pianist was raised by a church organist mother and auctioneer father. Straker swears he was born under the piano on the family farm. He was a student of the Royal Conservatory of Music and Trinity College in London.
Canadian Musician Magazine has called him “very much an artist to watch” while the Chicago Free Press has written, “Rufus Wainwright, as well as K.D. Lang are among the Canadians making essential and beautiful music. Add the name Jeffery Straker to that list.”
