Double Double Duo

The fifth performance in LDAC’s thirteenth season of live entertainment takes place on Feb. 21 at the Burns Lake Community Church on Kerr Road, 1 kilometre east of Burns Lake, just off Highway 16. Double Double Duo will perform a concert on accordion, piano and clarinet, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Church. Each member of Double Double Duo is a ‘double threat’ on two instruments. Kornel Wolak, returning to Burns Lake after a performance here a few seasons ago, plays clarinet and piano. Michael Bridge is a virtuoso accordionist, and is also featured on piano. Classically trained international soloists, they use comedy and musical sensitivity to bring wide-ranging repertoire to life. Double Double Duo performs original arrangements of classical showpieces, sensitive jazz ballads and fiery folk music from around the globe. Local artist and longtime Lakes District resident Leona Peden will exhibit her paintings in the lobby of the church before the show and at intermission. Tickets are now available for this performance at Process 4 circle arts Gallery, the Lakes Artisan Centre and Lakes District Printing and Stationery. Look for our ads in the Lakes District News.

The members of Double Double Duo are frequently presented on CBC Radio Music. They performed a concert at Holy Trinity Church in Toronto last spring which was recorded by CBC Radio. Part of the concert featured Michael as a soloist on the accordion. The concert also featured Michael on accordion and Kornel on clarinet. A portion of the concert was filmed, and you can see the videos on YouTube by clicking on these links:
