Three-Volume Album from Montreal Jazz Artist Andy MacDonald to be Launched at Diese Onze on October 22nd, 2022 as part of Django Festival de Montreal

Seeking Home came about when guitarist / singer / composer Andy MacDonald asked the question: “What is home?” To answer this question, Andy traveled to New Orleans for 5 weeks to gain inspiration from jazz musicians. He then composed the music during a composition residency in Banff.

Seeking Home will be available for purchase on Bandcamp, and will be released in three installments:

Volume 1 – September 2, 2022

Volume 2 – October 7, 2022

Volume 3 – October 22, 2022

Album Release Party in Montreal at Diese Onze – October 22, 2022

"I feel most 'musically at home' playing Django-inspired jazz manouche music. But I wanted to push myself to add the early American jazz influence of players like Eddie Lang, Adrian Rolini and Louis Armstrong, so naturally I went to New Orleans for five weeks of soaking up that musical culture." - A. MacDonald
