The trio is featuring music from their current CD “Hinterland”. Both George and James contribute compositions to the Iconoclast Trio, portions of which can be sampled on their website.

The trio’s collective experience is vast. Sean Drabitt spent years in NYC and New Orleans, George McFetridge lived in Toronto and Boston before joining forces with James McRae, prominent on the west coast of Canada.

“Fresh inventive music performed by gifted and creative musicians, the trio is a wonderful meeting of three unique instrumental stylists” – Phil Dwyer
