An Online Streaming EventPresented by the Dream Cafe, Penticton

“There’s a cinematic quality to the beautiful lyrics…Simply and directly, this is lovely music”
(Americana-UK.com)Jeffery Straker grew up taking piano lessons in small-town Saskatchewan and swears he was born under the piano on the family farm. Since then he’s gone on to perform over 100 shows per year across Canada, Europe and Latin America and was named the 2020 Saskatchewan Music Awards Roots/Folk Artist of the Year. The storytelling nature of his songs has the power to transport a listener - out onto a lake in Canada’s North or to the main street of a prairie town. Described as “a clever lyricist with an energetic piano style” his song writing has drawn critical comparisons to the likes of Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson & Billy Joel.
