Jesse Cook

Wed July 19, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Jesse Cook portrait

Peterborough Musicfest continues its 36th summer season on Wednesday, July 19, welcoming internationally acclaimed Canadian acoustic guitarist Jesse Cook to Del Crary Park.

The list of Cook’s music achievements and milestones is as long as it is so very impressive; a resumé that includes the coveted Acoustic Guitar Magazine Player’s Choice Silver Award, 11 Juno Award nominations and win for 2001’s Free Fall, a Gemini Award, and ten platinum and gold studio albums.

Add his producing of five specials for PBS, and his selling out of concert halls worldwide, and it’s no wonder Cook is hailed as a Canadian cultural ambassador.

Born in Paris and educated at Toronto’s Eli Kassner Guitar Academy, the Royal Conservatory of Music, York University and the esteemed Berklee College in Boston, Cook’s critically heralded 1995 Billboard charting debut album, Tempest, set him on a trajectory that continues to climb.

Having last appeared at Peterborough Musicfest in 2017, Cook has most recently toured Europe. Visit Jesse’s website.
