Eden Mills (just east of Guelph) is proud to present the distinguished Jim Gelcer/Paul Hoffert Trio featuring George Koller on Saturday, May 4. The performance takes place at 7:30 pm in the Eden Mills Community Hall.  The trio features Lighthouse band co-founder Paul Hoffert on piano, Jim Gelcer on drums and George Koller on bass.

The Trio will wow music lovers with an eclectic and varied show filled with singular, inimitable compositions drawn in part from their two critically acclaimed albums – “How High the Bird” and “Jim and Paul with Glenn and Ludwig.”

Hoffert, one of the founding members of the seminal 1970s Canadian rock band Lighthouse, is a prolific composer, author, academic as well as a recipient of the Order of Canada. Gelcer, a renowned jazz drummer, producer and composer, has lent his talent to artists ranging from rocker Lee Aaron to the Flying Bulgar Klezmer Band. Bassist Koller is a multi-instrumentalist with an ear for jazz and world music, who has performed for musicians including Peter Gabriel, Holly Cole and Chaka Khan.

Together, these three living legends of Canadian music complement each other’s musical gifts by breezing through intricately arranged classical and jazz pieces seamlessly. Their 2018 album, Jim and Paul play Glenn and Ludwig, saw the group play thoroughly scintillating, jazz-infused, original versions of Beethoven music through the lens of Canadian icon Glenn Gould.

“Music at the Hall” programs concerts and events to keep Eden Mills hopping, and to raise funds for the Community Hall operations.  The heritage Hall is proud to be carbon neutral!
