About the Artists
The first thing you might notice about Canton-based Pat Masalko’s music is its incredible diversity. The next thing you will notice is that, despite the diversity, a singularity for personality informs all his music. These are marks of musical artistry. His “lyrical songs”- tunes featuring vocals- tend toward folk, pop and rock flavors, while his instrumental compositions embrace cinematic flavors and jam structures. Pat has been involved in many ORMACO outreach programs over the past twelve years. Learn more at https://patrickmasalko.com.
Bath-based Jamieson Bowman began playing the violin at the age of two. Although his mother had no formal music training, using the Suzuki Method, Jamieson’s mother helped him quickly learn to play the full repertoire of Suzuki violin music. As a high school junior, he played at Carnegie Hall in New York City and later attended the College of Wooster. Jamieson is a versatile musician who is comfortable playing any style of music. He has played with bands focusing on Irish music, Cajun Zydeco, Big Band, Americana, Rock, Funk and Classical. He is currently the violinist for Elec Simon (Lead Percussionist for the Cleveland Cavaliers and former member of “Stomp” on Broadway). Jamieson has been honored for teaching violin in Chicago where he created the Quality Time Music School. In 2018, he founded Violin Bowman Music Studio, located in Fairlawn.
