ELLA/FOY
WINNER OF THE “EUROPAJAZZ-SOBLUES” AT THE RDV DE L’ERDRE 2018

Opening act: ELLA FOY – brilliant winner of the “Europajazz-Soblues” at the RDV de l’Erdre 2018 – is the meeting of two sensitivities that are as different as complementary. With elegance, warmth and grace mingled with gusts of energy, this duet – supported by two other talented musicians – plays a subtle and charming folk-blues relying on melodies woven around a bewitching voice.

NEW BLUES GENERATION TOUR
WITH JAMIAH ROGERS, ANNIKA CHAMBERS

Fifth edition of this “NEW BLUES” tour which already revealed the greatest talents of the young American blues scene (many remember Mr Sipp in 2016 or Shawn Holt in 2015!). This year, the very young Jamiah Rogers (21 years old) is the excellent surprise of this tour, for with three noteworthy albums to his name, he caught Buddy Guy’s eye – the latter has taken him under his wing. The singer Annika Chambers, formed of course in the gospel choirs, is to be watched closely as well since she has just been nominated to the Memphis BMA for her first album!

USA

Jamiah Rogers guitar, vocals | Annika Chambers vocals | Michael Hensley keyboards | Tony Rogers bass guitar, vocals | Di’onte Skinner drums
