"...Schwonik colors the [music] with an active imagination and serious technique…” - Frank Alkyer – DownBeat magazine

YAMAHA Drum Artist Karl Schwonik grew up on a farm near Gwynne, Alberta, Canada. Early on, he was exposed to a wide range of musical situations ranging from jazz to polka. Fresh out of high school, Schwonik embarked on a tour with 2-time Canadian Country Music Award Nominee Heather-Dawn. This was followed by an invitation to study at the Banff Centre where Schwonik was the youngest participant ever in the long-term career residency program.

Schwonik has an extremely active schedule; he has completed over thirty substantial tours as a leader. In his travels, Schwonik has performed in country barns, world-class jazz clubs and concert halls such as Carnegie Hall and the John F. Kennedy Center. His third of four recordings on Chronograph Records, 1+4, was #1 on Canadian jazz radio charts for nearly 2 months. Both 1+4 and Schwonik’s first album, Visions From the Farm, were nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for ‘Jazz Recording of the Year’.

In 2008, Schwonik founded the Wetaskiwin Jazz Society in Wetaskiwin, AB. The WJS strives to build awareness for the arts in the central Alberta region with its three main programs: the Wetaskiwin Jazz Camp, Jazz-in-Schools and community concerts. In 2011, Schwonik joined the Board of Directors for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA). The AFA is a government agency responsible for disbursing nearly $30M annually in grants and scholarships to artists and arts organizations in Alberta.

In demand internationally as both a guest artist and instructor, Schwonik has taught students of all ages at over two hundred educational institutions. He regularly lectures on a broad range of topics in jazz, music business and artists coping with disabilities. Some of these institutions include: University of Toronto, Indiana University, University of Southern California, The Banff Centre, Brandon University, University of Lethbridge, Red Deer College, Denver School of the Arts, and Triton College Chicago.

'Hollow Trees' CD Release - HAT Lily

 —  —

Ye Olde Jar Bar, 8 Natalie St , Medicine Hat, AB

Hutchinson Andrew Trio CD Release Feat. Lily String Quartet

Join the award winning Hutchinson Andrew Trio (HAT) for the release of their new album ‘Hollow Trees’ featuring the Lily String Quartet.

The multiple-award-winning Hutchinson Andrew Trio is a vital and distinctively western force on the Canadian and international jazz scene. The group’s third album, 2013’s Prairie Modern, was featured in jazz bible Down Beat magazine, which called the album “a terrific listen, with great musicianship throughout.” The current fourth album, Hollow Trees, was written specifically for the seven-piece configuration of the HAT and the Lily String Quartet. Its music features powerful, moving compositions by HAT pianist Chris Andrew that combine the beauty of classical chamber music with the drive and interplay of jazz.

It’s music that rewards the committed listener. Shifting textures, melodies, rhythm and tonality reveal themselves constantly throughout each track, telling a story that is best experienced from beginning to end.

The trio’s many honours include Western Canadian Music Awards nominations for each of its previous three albums, and the prestigious TD Grand Jazz Award at the Montreal International Jazz Festival. Hollow Trees is the group’s most inspired work to date, and is poised to make an impact on the global jazz scene.
