Julia AMIROVA Trio "Roots" | Vincent PEIRANI "solo" | Jan LUNDGREN, Lars DANIELSSON & Émile PARISIEN "Into the Night"



Again new stuff at eastPLUGGED®: a summer festival on 2 days with a "picnic" [details hereinafter] in-between the concerts of the 2nd day.

3 top class concerts at a special price of 65€/person including drinks on both days [Reduced special price on the occasion of our 50th eastPLUGGED concert].

Individual concerts are not on sale.

We will start on Friday with Ukrainian pianist Julia Amirova and her two Polish trio partners Mikolaj Sikora [b] and Patryk Gajda [dr], who will present the German premiere of their album "Roots". We discovered the Trio "just by chance" and were immediately fascinated about how the band combines dynamics and expressiveness on the one hand with melodic accents.

On the 2nd day of the festival we are looking forward to the 3rd eastPLUGGED® concert of Vincent Peirani [acc], this time all alone with his accordion and accordina. The sound space of the Friedenskirche is an ideal place for this particularly expressive and emotional solo concert.

The following 1-hour technical break will allow communication between the guests, “supported” by a glass of wine or water which will be offered for free. Separately you can book a culinary package presented by Ingo Köthschneider and his Canonicus team. You have the choice between a brisket-wrap [brisket cooked for 24 hours, plucked, smocked] and a vegetarian wrap, each for €10 and including a little surprise. Please have the food booked together with your reservation request!

The 2nd concert on Saturday will be presented by Jan Lundgren [p], Lars Danielsson [b] and Émile Parisien [sax], who have all played at eastPLUGGED® before, but in a different line-ups. The origin of this trio and their program "Into The Night" is absolutely "crazy": Jan had planned a piano trio with Lars and Wolfgang Haffner on drums for the Ystad Jazz Festival. Wolfgang Haffner had to cancel the day before because of a corona infection. Jan Lundgren answered the question "what now?" as unconventionally as ingeniously by asking Émilie Parisien, who happened to be available around Ystad, to take over the drummer´s part with his saxophone! What followed was one of the most impressive improvisation concerts of recent years, which we can now present in a flow-up edition at the end of our summer festival.

VIBE FACTOR Omar Sosa [p], Joo Kraus [tr], Diego Piñera [dr]

Towards the end of 2023, we heard about a new Trio of Cuban pianist Omar Sosa, featuring German trumpeter Joo Kraus and percussionist Diego Piñera from Uruguay. This line-up and the band name "Vibe Factor" already made us smiling. After experiencing a firework of modern beats and South American polyrhythms during a studio session, it was clear to us: we never had anything like this at eastPLUGGED® before, this fits perfectly into our concert series, this is something very special,: we must invite this Trio. The musical profile ranges from Afro-Cuban sounds to salsa, soul and classical music, with all three musicians taking leadership in various pieces while at the same time coordinating their instruments in a congenial way, achieving a new type of sound. We are delighted to be one of the first organizers in Europe to present this top-class music project and in the special ambience of the Friedenskirche.
