About

Classically trained international soloists, Michael Bridge (accordions & piano) and Kornel Wolak (clarinet & piano) use virtuosity, comedy and musical sensitivity to bring their custom repertoire to life. Playing classical showpieces, jazz ballads and fiery folk music, Wolak and Bridge began collaborating in 2012 and have since toured across Canada, Poland, France, and Ecuador as both performers and educators. With deft virtuosity and endless wit, Bridge & Wolak have been called the “Victor Borges of the 21st Century.” Fun-loving gentlemen (with seven degrees in music), they are both globe-trotting musicians and educators. They were nominated for the BC Touring Artist of the Year award in 2019.

Watch & be amazed!

A real gem from Sidney Bechet. À la prochaine..."
