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!

All three of them coming from the cradle of Blues, along the banks of the Mississippi River, they share a respect of the values and the tradition of this music.

Bill Deraime – English

BILL DERAIME

WEDNESDAY 14 NOVEMBER • 8:30 P.M.
Les saulnières – Le Mans

More than a name, BILL DERAIME is a sparkle that has been shining for a long time and with whom younger generations are not very familiar – except maybe his hit “Babylone tu déconnes”. The kid born near Senlis, far from the middle-class neighbourhoods, once hears Ray Charles. His friends choose rock&roll to keep the flame alive, for him, it will be blues. Forever. Today, he returns after a 5 five years break but with the experience of a fifty years career and nineteen records, and his last “Nouvel Horizon” which is a gem! His comeback? Clearly the great event of this 8th SoBlues!
