The Garry White Trio

The instrumental trio plays a mix of music from many eras, including swing, Latin, fiddle music and folk music.
Guitarist Garry White played professionally for many years on the Toronto jazz scene, including stints with jazz greats like Moe Koffman, Peter Appleyard and Ed Bickert. He even played with the Platters, who offered him a job in their band (circumstances didn’t permit). Early in his career, he played and toured North America and Europe with the Tommy Hunter Show. Later, this versatile, gifted musician joined Hagood Hardy. His dynamic guitar sound shows many influences, ranging from Chet Atkins to Lennie Breau, Ed Bickert and Wes Montgomery.
Marion Linton has been performing, composing and teaching music of many genres for over thirty years. She has played and recorded with The Emory Lester Set (newgrass), Trillium Jazz Quartet, Pat Wheeler Originals Jazz Quartet, folk artists James Gordon, Glen Reid, Ian Tamblyn , Beth Ferguson and Big Gravel. She has also performed with Fred Eaglesmith , Quartette and Honeygrass. Currently she resides near Huntsville and plays with a number of bands.
Bassist Renée White originally played clarinet with concert bands and orchestras in the Toronto and North Bay areas. Moving on to the electric bass opened many musical doors and she now plays with jazz and dance bands around the North bay area.
