Images of Canton: A Night of Fine Music in Collinsville

December 24, 2015 Arts and Entertainment, Photos No Comments

There was no shortage of talented musicians in Collinsville on Wednesday night. At Downright music and Art, Canton native and guitarist Jackson FitzGerald came from Brooklyn with fellow guitarist Mike Bono in tow. The two provided an evening of jazz guitar as many old friends and musical fans gathered to listen.

FitzGerald graduated from Canton High in 2010 and Berklee four years later. Bono graduated from Berklee in 2013. Both are living in Brooklyn working as freelance musicians.

After the two were done, members of the 2007 CHS Jazz combo held an impromptu jam.

At Wilson’s Pub, the mood was a bit more southern and bluesy with a band led by Dallas-area based guitarist Brian Calway, known as “Hash Brown.” A 32-year music veteran, Brown played all over the east coast before moving to the Dallas area in the 1980s.
