In anticipation of Jesse’s new album release Beyond Borders due out late August 2017, Jesse is embarking on a wide reaching Canadian and USA tour. The Imperial Theatre is pleased to present him once again on our stage as part of this tour.
Jesse Cook has a wide range of musical tastes. Of his style he has said ….” My strange way of playing guitar is a hybrid of styles. I was a classical guitarist as a kid and I studied flamenco and then I studied jazz. So there are three musical and guitar traditions in my background. And one of the forms I use, rumba flamenco, is itself a hybrid created in the 1800’s when sailors were coming back to Spain from Cuba, having heard these Cuban rythms. And here I am, 150 years later, taking it and mixing back with modern music and seeing where it takes me. Music is a constantly evolving thing ! “
