Les Quitzau

M eet Canadian roots music artist Lester Quitzau, a mellow guy who throws down a heavy groove. In a field where intangibles like feel and integrity count for so much, Quitzau has forged an exemplary career.

What began with a solid blues apprenticeship in the funky working-class bars of Edmonton has grown into an eclectic and constantly evolving musical journey for the guitarist, singer, composer and producer.

Whether he's coaxing languid, hypnotic sounds from his slide guitar in an intimate solo concert, or improvising freely with musical partners like Bill Bourne and Madagascar Slim, or his latest band, The Lester Quitzau Very Electric Trio, a hard-won honesty underscores every note.

Lester's latest CD, The Same Light was released 2007

�One of the most unique musical experiences available.�

Philippe P. Rey, Musical Director, In Guitar Festival, Switzerland
