Pelee Island Music Series: Count Yorgi

The PelPIMS Posteree Island Music Series is a growing and eclectic series of concerts and other artistic events featuring spoken word, live performance, & visual arts. The performances take place on Sundays in June, July, and August in a disused fossilized limestone quarry and restored former landfill. Primarily promoting local professional artists, we are very pleased to host approximately 30 artists for week long residencies this year. These professional artists from differing genres will lead workshops and master classes we are offering twice a week that are open to all community members at no cost. Our finalé performance of The Hidden Fairy, written by Pamela Cole, is an original collaborative, improvised jazz opera featuring community participants, and will take place on Aug. 16th, 2015. Admission is $10 (no charge for children), please BYOC (bring your own chair), limited seating available.

Word: Gustave Morin manipulates visual grammar.
Music: Count Yorgi consists of a stand up bass, trombone, guitar and drums, though not in that order. They play a style of cosmic jazz that is always pleasing to discerning audiences. The Count himself is Jackson Drobko. Like them on Facebook as Count Yorgi Jazz Trio.
Art: in collaboration with Collette Broeders, mixed media artist & database developer.
