Performer bios

Daralyn Fox is a trumpet player and composer/arranger based out of Rossland, BC, fundamentally shaped by experiences at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow, Idaho during her early years as a musician. It was during this time, legendary trumpet voices such as Arturo Sandoval, Freddie Hubbard, and Clark Terry left a significant impression. She loves high octane big band lead playing and can also be found in smaller groups creating music in the grand tradition of hard and post-bop masters like Clifford Brown, Charlie Parker and Lee Morgan. Daralyn has studied music performance at MacEwan University in Edmonton AB and St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish NS with a focus on jazz. She has also studied with the likes of William (Bill) Dimmer, Dominic Spera, and Jon Faddis. In her time as a performing artist, she has had the pleasure of playing with the incomparable Tommy Banks, Bobby Cairns and Dominic Spera.

Mike Rud is a Juno award-winning jazz guitarist and songwriter. As an instrumentalist, Mike has played alongside some of the greatest jazz musicians of the era like Peter Bernstein, Kenny Wheeler, Herb Ellis and Joey DeFrancesco. As a songwriter and arranger, Mike won the 2014 Juno Award for his album Notes on Montreal, a critically acclaimed musical portrait of the city. It was inspired by the great literature set in Montreal (Michel Tremblay, Gabrielle Roy etc.) and sung by Sienna Dahlen. Mike’s subsequent 2015 solo release, Miniatures, delighted audiences across Canada, creating the effect of a small group with only his voice and his guitar. Rud has a master’s degree from McGill and studied privately in New York City with one of the fathers of modern jazz guitar, Jim Hall. In 2007 Mike spent a year studying how the brain processes music, in the laboratory of Dr. Daniel Levitin (author of New York Times bestseller This is Your Brain on Music). Mike has taught at McGill, Western Washington and Carleton universities, and speaks frequently at other music schools. He is also a music instructor at Selkirk College in Nelson, BC.

Rob Fahie attended McGill University, completing his Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance. He then received a full scholarship to the University of Colorado to study a dual-concentration Master of Music degree (jazz and classical). During his career, he has performed at prestigious jazz clubs and premiere concert halls throughout the world including The Blue Note and Carnegie Hall. In 2013, Rob moved to Nelson and has succeeded in making a name for himself on the region’s vibrant music scene.

Steven Parish earned his BA in Audio Engineering from the Berklee College of Music. In addition to studying Drum Set at Berklee, he also studied jazz drum set privately with Frankie Dunlop (Thelonious Monk, Lionel Hampton), Latin rhythms with Frank Malabe and attended master classes presented by the great Buddy Rich. Mentored by the legendary Les Paul at age 17, Steven's also played, engineered and/or programmed tracks for Rock 'n' Roll legend Cub Koda, Ian Hunter, Joe Bouchard of Blue Öyster Cult and Rap artist Stezo-E. He has played Jazz with Anthony Braxton and Pat LaBarbara, as well as performance art with the groundbreaking Fluxus. He has performed with Selkirk’s long list of visiting artists including Robben Ford, John Handy, Jimmy Haslip, Max Bennett, Bob Mintzer, Frank Gambale, Mike Stern, Pat Mastellotto and Oz Noy, among others. Steven Parish started the Music Program at Selkirk College with Darcy Hepner, Jeff Link and Paul Landsberg in 1989.
