The Monik Nordine Quartet is joined by Nanaimo-based guitarist Astrid Lyre for an evening of original music. Also joining them will be Bruce Meikle on bass and David Emery on drums.

The quartet features the music of composers such as Oscar Peterson, Sonny Greenwich, Hugh Fraser and other more. Monik has set out to highlight Canadian works with this group and the stylistic influences lean heavily on Miles Davis and Sonny Stitt.
