Keith Price Double Quartet
Keith Price is a Winnipeg-based guitarist and composer. Beginning on his grandfather's old guitar, Price was first influenced by pop music, punk rock, and heavy metal before discovering jazz at age fifteen. Price began his formal studies at The Conservatory of Amsterdam and upon returning to Winnipeg, turned down a scholarship from The New School in New York City and instead, opted to study with local jazz guitar guru Larry Roy as part of Steve Kirby's newly-established jazz program at the University of Manitoba. Price is now enjoying an inspiring period of musical growth while studying with internationally recognized pianist and composer Michael Cain.
