To celebrate the release of his new CD “Ghosts,” Ottawa trumpeter Craig Pedersen toured Montreal, Kitchener, Peterborough, Toronto, Guelph and Hamilton in April with his quartet of Linsey Wellman, alto saxophone, Joel Kerr, double bass and Bennett Bedoukian drums. A growing network of presenters is making it possible for improvising artists such as the Pedersen group to appear in these smaller communities. Also touring during the spring were the Tim Crofts / Norman Adams / Lukas Pearse  trio with special guest Gerry Hemingway, the Dave Rempis / Darren Johnston / Larry Ochs trio from the USA, Hat & Beard with Ken Aldcroft and Dave Clark, and the Scandinavian quintet Atomic.
