The trio is the winner of the 2013 TD Grand Jazz Award from the Montréal International Jazz Festival.

Hutchinson Andrew Trio + Lily String Quartet

Unexpectedly great music from unexpected places!

An apt description of one of Western Canada’s more unique musical collaborations. Fusing the sensibilities of jazz and classical music, comes two award winning ensembles in their genres; The Hutchinson Andrew Trio (jazz) and The Lily String Quartet (classical). Their shows seamlessly blend jazz music infused with pop sensibilities with the lyrical sounds only a string quartet can generate.

Led by bassist and CKUA Radio host Kodi Hutchinson, the Hutchinson Andrew Trio (HAT) and Lily String Quartet (Lily), or HAT Lily have an engaging and entertaining presentation style that has been rapidly captivating audiences in Western Canada. Supported by composer, piano virtuoso and one of Canada’s rising jazz talents; Chris Andrew, this seven piece ensemble has been steadily converting audiences to their special brand of Prairie jazz.

In addition to performing some unique arrangements of classic jazz standards, HAT Lily draws upon the inspiration of their surroundings. Their music is a reflection of the vast array of musical and personal influences growing up in Canada’s Prairies. The new album represents the harmony, beauty, energy and excitement of the modern Canadian West.

The full seven piece ensemble will be releasing their new album Hollow Trees in February 2016.
