George Benson

This virtuoso jazz guitarist and magnificent Singer will be on stage at the festival on the 7th of July with a medley of his greatest hits.  His great curiosity has led him to working with Miles Davis and to creating versions of the Beatles’ Abbey Road; from Jefferson Airplane’s White Rabbit to Heitor Villalobos or Michel Legrand, and including Brazilian music and an expert fusion of soul, funk jazz and pop.

Lovers of rhythm & blues know him as a guitarist, singer, performer and author of such successes as On Broadway, Give Me The Night and Turn Your Love Around, whilst the world of jazz continues to treasure his classic instrumentalist albums of the 60s and beginning of the 70s.

 

VILLAGE STAGE:

Cool music with no stylistic ties will be presented by this quintet founded in 2015. Cadenzas Mediterranean touches will take us to the most recondite jazz clubs atmospheres. Compositions by Gorka Benítez and Juan de Diego, saxophone and trumpet respectively, paired with the drums of David Xirgu, and the strings of Dani Pérez on guitar and Pere Loewe on double bass. Sublime alchemy.
