Cover charge: $16/person

Nancy Walker is a Jazz pianist extraordinaire, with a strong Canadian presence and extensive following of fans and true admirers. She is, without doubt, one of the most talented musicians of the current generation of Jazz performers and composers. Her performance is clearly one not to be missed.
Nancy is one of the most expressive instrumentalists and a mainstay of the Canadian Jazz festival scene for the past ten to fifteen years. She is also a highly sought after side musician – by instrumentalists and vocalists alike.
“Nancy Walker extends an invitation to the listener to enter her very unique world of pianistic journeys. Hers is a joyous leaping loping stomping approach to the keyboard that harkens to the era of a strong left hand. There are many influences swirling in her music; there is also this strong sense of self, a definite presence of Nancy Walker as a musical entity.” Len Bukowski, CODA Magazine
