“ I’ve been trying to get there for a while,” Sharratt said. He will be accompanied by bassist/ violinist  Anatol McGinniss, with whom he has been playing with for seven years since meeting him in the jazz program at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo.

Sharratt has recorded three CDs in including his latest  “ Cellar Door,” which was released in 2014.

“We’re only doing two shows in Alberta — Edmonton and Lethbridge,” he said.

“It will be upbeat singer songwriter material, mostly original music and some Irish music as I’m also in an Irish band with Anatol,” he said.

 His second album “Blueprint” earned him a five Vancouver Island Music Awards including winning one for male vocalist of the year.
 He just finished a cross Canadian tour and listened to CBC all the way, giving him a steady diet of Canadian music to whet his musical palate.

“ The next album will be more Canadiana, which really comes from American music, which will be different because  I was influenced by the Dave Matthews band and John Mayer,” he said.


He hopes there will be a good turnout for his first Lethbridge  visit in a relatively smaller venue.
“ It’s a lot more fun playing for 30 people in a 100  seat venue than in an 800 or 900 seat venue.”
 Myc Sharratt plays the Slice, Dec. 16 at 9 p.m.
