Yardbird Suite Virtual Series – Erik Mortimer
July 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Erik Mortimer, Piano
Erik is a musician, composer and music director based in Edmonton Alberta Canada. His love of jazz music, harmony and focus on theatrical storytelling have allowed his compositions a unique voice in both the musical theatre and jazz idioms. Erik’s musical voice is influenced by the sound of film composers, the rhythms and grooves of New Orleans music and the improvisations of jazz greats.
In the spirit of our incredible collective effort to flatten the curve, your Yardbird Suite, Edmonton’s premiere jazz venue since 1957, is presenting a series of live online performances for the Yardbird Suite Virtual Series.
We broadcast live from the Yardbird Suite. There are no audiences other than the performers and audio technician who are physically distant, do not share the same equipment, nor come into contact with each other. Every effort has been made to comply with AHS safety guidelines.
Curated by Edmonton musician Stephanie Urquhart, the all-Edmonton lineup features a variety of solos, duets, and instruments. Performances will run Fridays & Saturdays 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
If you missed some of broadcasts, or want to watch again, please visit our Youtube page.
The Yardbird Suite Virtual Series is made possible due to the generous support of the Edmonton Arts Council and the Edmonton Community Foundation.
