Bellows & BrassBellows & Brass is a trio comprised of three of Canada’s most successful soloists: Guy Few (trumpet, piano), Joseph Petric (accordion) and Eric Vaillancourt (trombone).

A powerful and engaging ensemble, Bellows and Brass have performed for series and festivals including Community Concerts USA, Debut Atlantic Encore, Chappelle de Bon Pasteur, Festival of the Sound, and The Winnipeg Contemporary Music Festival. Individually these three artists have been invited to perform as concerto soloists throughout North America including the Orchestra of Saint Lukes, the Boston Modern Orchestra Project, the Oregon Bach Festival Orchestra and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. A concerto written for the trio by Boyd McDonald was debuted with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in 2006.

Bellows and Brass make music that is challenging, pleasing and above all-fun. Their concerts have been described as “vividly emotional … passionate … a revelation.”
