Ken Prue- "I have been fortunate to present Dave Young in concert more than a dozen times, always to full houses, most recently at Victoria Hall and previously at The LOFT before its untimely closing in August 2022. This concert reprises a Dave Young tribute to Oscar Peterson with whom Dave worked for more than 20 years."
