Guitares en Cormatinois 2018

Eglise de Chazelle
Like each year, an overview of what the Festival Guitares en Cormatinois, 17th edition, has on offer. This year will see a number of familiar faces on stage, however, there are also a number of artists who have never played in Chazelle before. For more detailed information do not hesitate to visit our completely renewed Guitares en Cormatinois website
All concerts start at 17h30 and will be held at the Romanesque church of Chazelle.

Irish Kind Of 2016
Saturday 7 July 2018: Irish Kind Of, a trio (guitar, vocals, violin, flute) specialized in Irish folk music. This is their third performance in Chazelle, and so far they always managed to fill the church up completely. We strongly recommend making a reservation.

Sunday 6 July 208: Markus Held - violin, Hilario Yáñez – guitar en Marie Braun – flute with a varied program of classical music. Yáñez has played here before, and Held is also not unknown around here.

Sunday 15 July 2018: Hair Brothers, a duo, vocals and 7-strings guitars. According to their Facebook page they hve developed a style based on jazz and world music.

Duo Atlas - Spanje
Saturday 21 July 2018: Duo Atlas, a Spanish/Dutch duo, guitar and cello. Both live and work in Spain. Their program covers music from around 1200 to contemporary music.

Sunday 22 July 2018: Paris Gadjo Combo, a Manouche Quartet (guitars, bass, clarinet) playing Manouche jazz and Brazilian Choro Music. Knowing the popularity of this sort of music around here we strongly recommend making a reservation.
