GRANVILLE FERRY, NS - North Hills Museum’s always-popular and successful Jazz Café is back for its fourth season, and kicks off July 26 with an evening of music, food, and wine when the Wolfville-based Steve Lee Trio returns with a bit of swing and Latin jazz.

The two-hour show starts at 7 p.m. on the museum grounds.

If you haven’t heard Steve Lee, he’s a graduate of the St. FX jazz program and has been teaching and playing around Nova Scotia for the past 25 years. It’s not unusual to find him playing in some of the best dining establishments in the Valley.

As a songwriter, he has been gathering songs and ideas for years and has made some great musical connections with musicians who have been very active in the Nova Scotia jazz scene, who will be playing with him at North Hill’s Jazz Café.

Kory Bayer (acoustic bass) owns and operates a recording studio in Wolfville. Alex Porter (drums) has worked with many successful bands in Toronto and now resides in Lunenberg. Bob Federer (keys) has been a working musician almost all his life and partnered in a very successful recording studio in Toronto for years before moving to Nova Scotia.

The Food

“This year we are featuring the artistry of Chef Kevin Wagner,” said site supervisor Dawn Bourke. “Finger foods for the evening’s entertainment will be charcuterie and fine cheeses, provided by Chef Kevin Wagner.”

Wagner is a registered nutritional consulting practitioner (RNCP) and owner of Eating With Wisdom – Nutritional Consulting & Personal Chef Services. He’s become well-known throughout his career in Southwestern Nova Scotia for his exemplary foodservice and a fastidious attention to detail, a repertoire that has now evolved to include holistic nutritional coaching and lifestyle management for those seeking optimum health.
