Lucian Gray- Guitar Conor Murray -Bass David Lyttle –Drums
Westport Jazz has taken its first steps in 2019 to bring high-quality live jazz to Westport. It aims to develop the jazz audience in Westport and County Mayo and to add to the current jazz scene. We are delighted to welcome the Lucian Gray trio as our final event of 2019 prior to their appearance at the Falcarragh Jazz Festival.
Known for his relaxed feel and commanding sound, Lucian Gray is a virtuosic young guitarist with a deep respect for the jazz tradition. Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Lucian Gray was born into a musical family. After being introduced to the music of Wes Montgomery, he decided he wanted to be a jazz guitarist.
In 2008, Lucian was awarded the Slaight Scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music on a full scholarship. He graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree of Music Performance. During his time at Berklee, Lucian studied with guitar guru Mick Goodrick. In 2009, Lucian was awarded the Rising Young Star at the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival.
In 2015, Lucian entered the first Wes Montgomery International Jazz Guitar Competition and was one of five finalists selected to perform at the culminating concert of the competition.
He is joined by up and coming bass player Conor Murray and MOBO award nominated jazz drummer David Lyttle
