FIRST NAMES REVEALED FOR FEST JAZZ 2017

Friday 28th – Sunday 30th July

Book Your Early Bird Tickets NOW!

After last year’s record breaking twelfth edition of Fest Jazz, we can reveal the first bands and stars booked for Fest Jazz 2017.

This young at heart festival, set in the depths of the beautiful Brittany countryside, attracts artistes and fans from around the world! The atmosphere is relaxed and convivial with a wide range of nationalities and generations. And there are swing dancers everywhere!

Many in the jazz world are talking about Fest Jazz as the “new wave festival”. Why not come and see for yourself and join in the fun?  “Early Bird” tickets will be on sale until 23rd January – just 50€ for a weekend stroller ticket giving access to all venues. For a couple, that’s a saving of at least 18€ on the normal price. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.fest-jazz.com/tickets. The page is in English.  If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email: contact@fest-jazz.com.

What better way to shake off the winter blues!

Meanwhile Some 2017 Programme Tasters!

Gunhild Carling
Gunhild Carling is one of our era’s most celebrated jazz stars.  She plays around 20 instruments and her dancing has to be seen to be believed!  She combines her extraordinary virtuoso skills with elements of vaudeville flamboyance that will take your breath away. In the last few months she has played in Argentina, Central Park New York, Seoul, Las Vegas, Israel, Bangkok and now Châteauneuf-du-Faou!  An unforgettable Fest Jazz scoop.

Second Line Jazz Band
One of the most popular New Orleans style bands in Europe, the Second Line Jazz Band from Sweden was formed in 1989. Original improvisations and arrangements and a tremendous intensity in their playing have given them opportunities to perform at many jazz clubs and festivals, as well as on TV and radio in, for example, England, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, and now Brittany!

Agathe Iracema Quartet
A young Franco-Brazilian singer who mixes intimate bossa nova melodies with explosive samba rhythms and Brazilian jazz. One of the most sought after young stars in French Jazz today.

Les Sweet Peppers
Fest Jazz prides itself in finding new, young, New Orleans style bands each year. Les Sweet Peppers frm Montpelier in the south of France are very much in this tradition.  Have a look at their new video …

Shades
A young acapella  group from the Paris region. What talent and what French charm!

The Dorine de Wit Band with Jamie Brownfield,  Jack Cottrell and Tom Kinkaid
Well known to the UK jazz world, Dorine’s group was a sensation at Fest Jazz 2016 and we just had to invite them back in 2017.  They are playing throughout the weekend and will again be hugely popular.

All this just for starters! The rest of the programme (over 100 musicians) will be revealed
in the New Year!

Thank you Angelina Beauvir, Trevor Stent and the entire Fest Jazz Team for again selecting Jazz&Jazz to help promote your brilliant Brittany Festival.
