Performers for the 2012 Festival
Pervoe Solnce - from Russia with Jazz!
One of the headline acts for the 2011 Festival is a band from Russia called Pervoe Solnce , a 7 piece band who play combination of diverse music styles into a single harmonious shape. Jazz-rock drums and jazz bass, classical guitar, cello and bop trumpet, melancholic accordion and a handful of vibraphone harmonies create a unique atmosphere of melody, grace and drive.
Another great band for 2011 are The Slammers. The band consists of double bass, piano,alto sax, drums, tenor sax,baritone sax, trumpet and trombone.
The Singer is a very talented young man, Duncan Moris, he came from the European Rat Pack tour to join the band.
They are set to on a brilliant Vegas style show which would take the audience back in time to those wonderful days when this kind of music was new and exciting.
The band have a wonderful fun interaction on stage with brilliant vocal harmonies, but there is a touch of wildness bubbling underneath and individual solos burst out during most songs.
These are just 2 of the forthcoming acts for the 2011 Callander Jazz and Blues Festival which promises to be every bit as exciting as previous years. We are updating the website frequently so check out the performers page for news of new bands as they are confirmed.
