Traveler had the privilege of having outstanding musicians in their lineup throughout the years including cultural exchange collaborations with international musicians, especially in Turkey.
ACOUSTIC TRAVELER ensemble – Captivating sound of violin, oud, Middle Eastern percussion along with ethnic instruments collected during Scott Jeffers’ journeys dominate the concerts. The compositions range from fiery through playful songs to tragic heart-wrenching ballads. inspired while traveling on the treks across the harsh deserts of Jordan and Egypt and across the contrasting landscape of the Emerald Isle, on the sand dunes of Morocco, at the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, in birdsong filled forests of Transylvania, in the rain forests of Malaysia; and touring the ancient amphitheaters in Turkey. A real magic of a Traveler concert is in the connection the band makes with the audience. Acoustic Traveler has been a returning favorite of the spectacular Las Noches de las Luminarias festival throughout December.
TRAVELER, the ROCK BAND – The sound is an explosive fusion of world music and rock with dramatic and sweet melodies influenced by ethnic heritages from all over the World. Band leader and composer Scott Jeffers’ own Lebanese heritage and American upbringing has inspired his vision to blend elements of ancient ethnic music with rock. The Traveler concert is a multi-cultural emotionally intensive performance bringing Gypsy, Middle Eastern, Celtic, Greek and Turkish musical heritages to stage; combining traditional ethnic instruments with all the power of a full blown rock band. The band has been a favorite headlining act at festivals throughout Canada, the US and Turkey.
SCOTT JEFFERS SOLO Concert – Scott plays his original compositions in the frame of a one-man world music show case performance. His music brings the people, the sounds, the sights, the smells and the landscape of faraway places intimately close. The solo concerts also feature compositions that are not heard anywhere else, and mesmerizing improvisations for violin.
