Sylvain Provost

Since first catching the world’s attention as winner of the Yamaha award at The Montreal International Jazz Festival in 1983, jazz guitarist and composer Sylvain Provost has become a prominent and renowned force on the Canadian and International Jazz scene.

For over 25 years, Sylvain has participated in countless events, as soloist, or lead of his own Trio, as concert performer and studio recording artist, and as sideman, arranger, and co-producer. Along with his long-time bass partner, Norman Lachapelle, he has produced a host of recordings, winning nominations and awards, including the Opus Awards and a “Félix” award for best jazz album at ADISQ in 2001.
