Live at Vauban is back at den Atelier and crammed into a package of quality concerts over three days.
The Luxembourg City Tourist Office’s annual autumnal Live At Vauban festival is now established as an eclectic three-day celebration of music--for years its programme of concerts was spread intermittently across the autumn months.
The more focussed festival this year features three internationally acclaimed headliners.
Jazz-fusion guitarist Al Di Meola (photo) tops the bill on Friday. He will perform songs from his latest album, All Your Life, which is a tribute to The Beatles in the stripped down setting of strictly acoustic guitar.
Support acts are Luxembourg cellist André Mergenthaler and German world music jazz duo Dirks und Wirtz.
European-based US jazz artist Stacey Kent presents her new album The Changing Lights, on Saturday.
She will be preceded by support slots from fellow American singer-beatboxer Butterscotch (who shot to fame as a finalist on America’s Got Talent) and local jazz band Marly Marques Quintet.
The festival is rounded off with a performance by influential funk artist Larry Graham, bass player with Sly and the Family Stone and a favourite of Prince.
His Graham Central Station band will be joined by sax player Candy Dulfer to headline the Sunday show, which also features local funk sax player Mister Goldhand (Fred Hormain).
