Duo joins forces for a fresh take on jazz favourites

Duncan and Wey bring their different experiences and talents to the Osborne Bay Pub stage

Tenor saxophonist Iain Duncan teams up with keyboardist and chanteuse Ashley Wey for an afternoon of West Coast jazz, bossa novas, ballads and blues on Sunday, April 28 at Pat’s House of Jazz in Crofton’s Osborne Bay Pub.

Backed by an in-the-pocket rhythm section of bassist Louis Rudner and drummer Cyril Lojda, the two deliver a delightfully fresh, mellow take on jazz favourites from the ’60s.

They perform regularly together as a duo at the O Bistro Café in Victoria. Duncan has also played Hermann’s Jazz Club, the Northern Quarter and at the Victoria Jazz Festival, as well as numerous festivals around B.C. as a vaudeville entertainer.

He studied music at Capilano College, the University of British Columbia and at UVic.

Wey has toured the world playing on cruise ships and accompanying award-winning musicians, including the Parachute Club and four-time Grammy winner Manny Kellough.

Having studied music at Toronto’s Humber College, she works professionally as a pianist, singer, composer and arranger.

Sunday’s show, presented by the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society as part of its weekly jazz series, begins at 2 p.m. in the Osborne Bay Pub, 1534 Joan Ave. in Crofton.

Admission is $15. For reservations, call 250-324-2245. Tables will be held until 1:30 p.m.
