Forty years! Brosella Folk & Jazz festival 2016 celebrates this year four decades!
It is with great pleasure that Brosella celebrates this special occasion with a prestigious programme and additional activities that will make our 2016 Brosella Folk & Jazz festival
a party definitely not to be missed. The children will have their own very special Brosella Kids festival
, full of fun, concerts and workshops at the Brosella Kids Village.
New at the festival is the ‘Brussels Poets Speakers’ Corner
’, in collaboration with the Brussels Poetry Collective. Picture and poster exhibitions
retracing the 40 years of the festival will take place at the ‘Parlement francophone bruxellois’ and the ‘Vlaamse Raad’ as well as in La Tentation in Brussels. And last but not least, Brosella will publish a ‘Brosella 40 Book
’ taking an unusual look behind the scenes showing the diversity of this collaborative event over the last 40 years.
The 40th edition of the festival promises to be a major event for all ages in its breadth and depth of programming. The entire program will be presented on May 18, but we can already tell you that SHARON SHANNON (IE)
and THE UNTHANKS (UK)
will perform on Saturday, July 9, and RICHARD GALLIANO NEW MUSETTE QUARTET (FR)
with Special Guest PHILIP CATHERINE (BE)
and B.J. SCOTT & BRUNO CASTELLUCCI BAND (US/BE)
on Sunday, July 10.
