Breakwater has wowed audiences at events including the Kaslo Jazz Festival (Main stage 3 years running), the Kimberley Kaleidoscope Festival, the Selkirk Pro Musica Concert Series and the Nelson Street Festival. Breakwater has also toured and performed extensively throughout Western Canada.

In November of 2016 Breakwater recorded their debut album, which will be released in early 2017. The band’s versatility is showcased with their professional classical expertise combined with their experience in roots, folk and jazz.

This performance promises to be a unique and thoroughly engaging experience and will get the all ages audience up on their feet and moving to the music!
