The Jazz festival in Conilhac plays its last notes on Saturday with the Nola spirit band and Gead Mulheran.
The month of November is coming to an end and with it, to the chagrin of swing enthusiasts, the last notes of the Jazz festival in Conilhac will fade away. For the 5e and last evening of this musical event, the organizers wanted to punctuate their programming in style.
Saturday 27 November, at 8:45 p.m. in the village hall, the public is invited to experience a real festive spectacle with the Nola spirit big band and Gead Mulheran.
Gead Mulheran is one of those Irish sons, raised in a permanent musical atmosphere. He was influenced in the 1970s by iconic groups, such as Buzzcocks, Joy Division or The Damned. The punk atmosphere will bring him to the New wave and will mark him for life. He created his own group, Leviathan. His studies lead him to France where he settles permanently. He founded the group Blue Matisse with which he recorded several albums, in the midst of the new wave movement. The meeting with the leader of the Big band brass, Dominique Rieux, and David Cayrou will be decisive. More than ever accomplices, they will present a new show that celebrates New Orleans today.
Show embodied by the Nola spirit big band. An orchestral production with boundless energy, through arrangements and original compositions. The English singer, the insatiable Gead Mulheran, who lives only for the music and the wonderful dancer and “ Ceremonial Marshall “, Angie Larquet, will sublimate the scene. It will move.
At the end of the show, the evening will continue at the Cave à jazz where the Léogé trio will perform until late at night.
Le Nola spirit big band & Gead Mulheran will therefore perform on Saturday, with Dominique Rieux (musical direction), Tony Amouroux and Cyril Latour on the trumpet; on trombone Rémi Vidal, Michel Chalot and Olivier Lachurie; on saxophone David Cayrou (co-direction), Christophe Mouly, Jean-Michel Cabrol and Pascal Pezot; on the André Neufert battery; on the keyboard Thierry Ollé; on guitar Florent Hortal; on bass : Julien Duthu. Dance : Angélique Larquet. Singing : Gead Mulheran.
