The Marc Atkinson Quartet will fire up the 2011-12 season of high-quality musical performances, presented by Quadra Island Cultural Committee, with sizzling, Django-style, finger picking fun. “He (BC's Marc Atkinson) picks in the same kind of league as Chet Atkins,” said Loudon Wainwright, of Maverick Magazine. Marc will bring his outstanding technique, his fluent and graceful style, a set of new compositions and three outstanding musicians to back him up, to the Quadra Community Centre on Saturday, October 15 at 8:00 PM. Tickets for the Marc Atkinson Quartet are available at the usual outlets: The Music Plant in Campbell River and on Quadra at Hummingbird Office and Art Supply and at Quadra Crafts.
