Traditional jazz meets sounds from around the world in Brunton

Last Sunday, the Montreal-based Huu Bac Quintet paid Mount Allison a visit and enthralled concert-goers with its signature blend of traditional jazz and music from

around the world. Of Vietnamese and Chinese heritage, versatile musician Huu Bac expertly performed the dan bau (traditional Vietnamese monochord), erhu (Chinese

fiddle) and the jazz guitar with accompaniment from a talented team of musicians: Guillaume Martineau (keyboard), Marie-Neige (violin), Jean-Felix Mailloux (bass)

and Etienne Mason (drums).
