Piano Duo Peter Hum and Steve Boudreau - Join the two top-tier Ottawa-based pianists as they present Peter's latest compositions, music from Steve's newest recording and some outstanding but underplayed tunes from the jazz canon.
Ottawa jazz pianist Peter Hum has been a mainstay on the music scene of Canada's capital for almost three decades. He strives to make music that uplifts listeners with forthright lyricism, strong evocations of moods, and energetic, unfettered improvising. He counts himself very fortunate to have performed with such Canadian jazz legends as Sonny Greenwich, Phil Nimmons, Reg Schwager and Pat LaBarbera. He has released three albums: A Boy's Journey (2010), Alpha Moment (2015) and Ordinary Heroes (2020), the last of which received a four-star review in DownBeat. Outside of his musical pursuits, Peter has been a full-time journalist with the Ottawa Citizen since 1990.
Steve Boudreau is an Ottawa-based pianist who specializes in jazz and improvisation. He has performed at various festivals and theatres across North America and parts of Europe. In 2020 he received a "Digital Originals" grant from the Canada Council for the Arts and recorded and released five home recordings of piano music. His current focus is on smaller projects, finding ways to safely collaborate with other musicians to perform on various online platforms until live performances in front of smaller audiences can return.
