The Charivari Meeting Point to offer international class events

For 29 years, the Charivari Meeting Point at the Prittwitz Street Fortifications in Ulm has made a name for itself as a top music venue. Regularly throughout the year, the ‘Blues Days’ take place at this beautiful location. Even if not every artist on the stage is familiar to you, you can count on the quality of music on offer, something particularly true of the 41st ´Blues Days` performances.

The ‘Blues Days’ kick off with `Sugar Ray and The Blue Tones` on the 9th March – a real all-star band, led by the singer and harmonica player Ray Norcia, who has been nominated for over 10 Blues music awards.

Once again outstanding virtuoso harp music will also be on offer:  the Hungarian Mátyás Pribojski ranks among Europe’s greatest harp players and will bring to Charivari his mixture of ‘swinging blues in rocking shoes’ on 16th March.

James Armstrong, son of a Blues singer and Jazz musician, is a great guitarist, singer and songwriter. The American has released many albums and has played alongside musical greats such as Buddy Guy, Keb Mo, Chaka Khan and Shemekia Copeland. He will perform at the Charivari on 23rd March.

Bringing a stunning combination of Mississippi blues, rock and American roots, the band ´Delta Moon` plays music like it should be: raw and honest. With the original line-up, the band from Atlanta will perform at Charivari on 30th March, presenting their new album ´Cabbagetown`.

At the finale of the ´Blues Days` on 6th April, Charivari brings to you yet another top act: `JP Soars and The Red Hots`. Not only was the string virtuoso from Florida victorious in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, he also won the highly regarded Albert King Award as best guitarist.
