A tour de force of versatility, fine musicianship and technical dexterity, the Pierre Schryer Trio brings together three diverse and successful music careers laden with JUNO, Canadian Folk Music, Western Canadian Music, and Grammy awards and nominations.

Joseph Phillips is no stranger to these parts – his huge musical presence has graced the AlgomaTrad Staff Concert stage for several years now.
