TRURO – Three artists will grace the stage at St. Andrew's United Church here next weekend for 'Jammin At Home.'
Peter Davison, The Duke of Loops and Truro's Marty Ettinger will perform at 2 p.m. on Nov. 18. Tickers are $10 and are available at the door. Proceeds of the concert will be used to upgrade windows at the church.
A graduate of the St. Francis Xavier music program, Davison is a professional musician who has worked with an eclectic band 'hu noo,' spent stints as a solo and ensemble guitarist on cruise ships, and is the leader of the Davison Trio, who performed selections from Jesus Christ Superstar at the church.
His original compositions will soon be released on an album, The Nylon Lounge, due for release next year.
The Duke of Loops is a solo performer who creates the illusion of a full band by fusing the organic nature of guitar, voice and percussion with looping technology. The resulting tunes and soundscapes infuse jazz, blues and electronica.
The Duke of Loops is the 2010 Canadian Boss Loop Station Champion.
Marty Ettinger, a pulpit supply minister with the United Church of Canada, is a vocalist, composer and multi-instrumentalist who calls St. Andrew's United Church home.
Ettinger wowed the audience when singing at the Embrace Concert in July with Grammy Award Winner and well-known songwriter Dutch Robinson at the Cobequid Educational Centre.
Ettinger lends his voice at St. Andrew's United Church singing solos during services, special performances, and several original shows with St. Andrew's minister, Rev. Jay Ettinger. Ettinger will be performing his own upbeat Christian Gospel selections as well as some classics.
