Joe Trio is not your average piano trio. They don’t want to be neatly categorized, but instead strive for diversity, versatility, and more than a little humour and unpredictability. Their repertoire consists of the classics – from Papa Haydn to Uncle Shostakovich- new works by contemporary composers, and their own arrangements of popular, jazz and rock tunes. And they’re not afraid to mix together so many styles of music into a single piece it makes your head spin. More than virtuosi, the Trio’s members are fantastic performers who engage the audience in a way few classical musicians can. Amply witty, charming, and tremendously musical, Joe Trio leaves audiences with a new appreciation for classical music.
They recorded their first CD, ‘A Cup of Joe’ in 1997, and their second album, recorded with CBC and entitled ‘Set ‘em up, Joe’ (2001), was nominated for Best Classical Performance at the West Coast Music Awards. In 2003, they joined forces with Canadian broadcaster and writer Stuart McLean and have since collaborated with Stuart on a number of concerts including a broadcast on The Vinyl Café. In 2005, Joe recorded a commissioned piece called ‘Rooster Bob Boogie’ for Ireland’s RTE Lyric FM radio. In 2008, the trio toured the Gulf Islands and debuted their symphony show with the Victoria Symphony. In 2009 they toured the US Midwest and Canadian Maritimes and in 2011 recorded their third CD, ‘Cold Cuts.’ That same year, violinist Cameron Wilson premiered his film noir operetta ‘Supernatural Noir’ co-written with librettist Kico Gonzalez Risso. Most recently in October 2014, the trio joined forces with Stuart McLean again in a Vinyl Café tour of BC and Alberta.
Joe Trio is Cameron Wilson, violin; Charles Inkman, Cello and Allen Stiles, piano.
