Hot Club de Finlande featuring Mika Huusari
Thursday Jazz, Pub O’Learys
Tonight we go back in time to 1930s Paris, when jazz came to Europe and American swing merged with the French musette tradition as well as the sounds of the European Roma people. Back then, you could hear the sounds of Gus Viseur’s accordion and Django Reinhardt’s guitar in the cafes of Montmartre.
– American swing, stylish French sounds and lively ethnic sounds. Jazz in the city!
