A pair of Greenbank jazz musicians are reeling after their home was burglarized while they attended a popular music festival.
Kristi and Keith O’Donnell of the Trio Nouveau had their home burglarized the evening of Sept. 22 while they were performing at Djangofest Northwest in Langley.
Burglars got away with instruments, recording equipment and personal items that included the ashes of O’Donnell’s mom. The instruments stolen include a Heritage H575 Archtop Jazz Guitar, a Gibson Tal Farlow, a Heritage electric guitar, a Louden O10c acoustic guitar, an electric bass and a ukelele.
O’Donnell is a member of Trio Nouveau, a jazz band that performs around the region.
She said on the website to the thieves that they can return items by leaving them in the open shed with the green roof.
