Drummer / composer / band-leader Kelby MacNayr performs groundbreaking original music, soulful swinging jazz, reaching contemporary music and traditional music from around the world. A dynamic and creative musician MacNayr performs in Canada and abroad with leading musicians from New York, Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Montreal, Toronto & Europe. A faculty member of the renowned Jazz Port Townsend Festival under director John Clayton, staff at the Lionel Hampton International Jazz Festival, Kelby is continually reinventing himself as a performer, composer and educator. In November 2013 the Kelby MacNayr Quintet released has the much-anticipated album The Measure of Light featuring Phil Dwyer, Dan Lapp, Miles Black & Tom Wakeling. Recent concert highlights include performances with Larry Fuller, John Clayton, George Colligan, Geoffrey Keezer and more!

Born and raised on Canada's west coast, Kelby is connected to small but mighty musical community in his home-town, a great and varied musical community across the country and an ever-changing world of musicians in the Pacific Northwest, and across the US. His passion for the human-element in music-making has fostered a love of numerous world-music traditions as well as artists of all styles and mediums.
