GRÜVOLOGY (USA) – touring Sweden and Norway Summer 2016
GRÜVOLOGY was started in 2007 by Walter Kemp, III and Bernard Kunz with the goal to push the boundaries of contemporary improvised jazz music.
Over the last few years, GRÜVOLOGY has been recognized as one of Western New York’s most interesting ensembles of jazz music, writing and performance that spans the spectrum from the earthy blues and gospel to the r&b inflected swing and the ethereal and open floating free improvisation.
Welcome to get in contact with us if you are interested to have them at your festival or jazz/blues club in the summer of 2016!

The String Contingent (Australia/Scotland) – touring Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway Summer 2016
Renowned acoustic chamber-folk trio The String Contingent are headed for Scandinavia in the 2016 summer season. Australians Chris Stone (violin) and Holly Downes (double bass), with Scotsman Graham McLeod (guitar) have developed their sound over four albums in five years, to reach ‘…the upper echelon of instrumental exploration, arrangement, composition and performance…’ (Tony Hillier, Rhythms Magazine).
The String Contingent combine their diverse musical backgrounds in celtic, classical, jazz and pop into melodic, evocative, exciting and poignant musical discussions or ‘trialogues’. Their music “… brings to mind the bluegrass records of Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer.
