Dryden Entertainment Series
A presentation of the best in Canadian entertainment
November 22, 2023
Singer-songwriter pianist Jeffery Straker grew up taking piano lessons in a small Saskatchewan farming town on the Canadian prairies, raised by a church organist mother and an auctioneer father. He’s gone on to perform over 100 shows per year across Canada, Europe and Latin America.
Serving up a rootsy-storytelling brand of song with rich narratives, his song writing has the ability to transport a listener - out onto a lake in Canada’s North or to the main street of a prairie town. Across 8 albums to date critical comparisons have been drawn to the likes of Harry Chapin, Kris Kristofferson, & Jackson Browne while performances have seen him live on BBC radio in the UK, in concert with symphony orchestras and on festival and theatre stages.
