Special LIVE Performance - Miles Zurawell & Bill Humby - via Zoom

  • 27 Sep 2021
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Miles Zurawell is a performer, recording artist and teacher based in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. He has toured internationally with renowned acts such as the Greg Blake Band, Blaine Sprouse, John Lowell and Zachary Lucky.

Raised in small town Alberta, Miles Zurawell was immersed in a wide range of music from an early age. A pianist and self-taught guitarist in his formative years, he fell in love with bluegrass when he was inspired to pick up the banjo by a university biology professor. Soon after, he discovered the dobro (resonator guitar) as well. In 2018, he left behind the golden handcuffs of his government biology career to focus intensively on learning the dobro, and travelled all over North America seeking out the best teachers.

Now armed with the technical skills acquired from intensive study of the bluegrass genre, along with his eclectic taste in music, his musical focus is to help bring the beautiful timbre of the dobro to other genres of music as well as bluegrass.

Miles will be joined by Bill Humby on guitar and vocals. Bill & Miles have been playing and performing together for more than 5 years in various configurations, but primarily in the western Canadian bluegrass group “Nomad Jones”. 

Zoom link will be sent to Active members on the day of the show. 

Wile there is no cost for his event to PBOMS members, we strongly encourage the audience to send financial contributions to the artists via PayPal or e-transfer (details will be shared in the promo emails).
