To entertain you at the entrance to the festival and at the bar
Wild Cat Feet Warmers
The Feetwarmers will warm the feet of the festival goers. Habitually they warm the feet of Germans or Swiss, but they will attempt to acclimatise themselves to the festive warmth of Blauzac and raise temperatures even more!

Soul & Jazz
The Black Jazz of the 20's and 30's is irresistible.
Again, a century later, here are musicians that feel right at home in this style. They are soloists known for their instinctive swing, but under the hand of Emmanuel Hussenot (irrepressible creator of Orphéon Célesta), arrangements, personal finds, humor and poetry create the surprise.
And so we travel from Ellington to Bechet and Morton, from Kurt Weill to Georges Gounod in a surprising fresh and creative manner: a pleasurable journey.
Emmanuel Hussenot - alto sax, recorder, vocal and musical director.
Philippe Audibert - clarinette, tenor et soprano saxaphones.
Félix Hunot - banjo, vocals.
Patrick Perrin - soubassophone.
Romain Ponard - percussion, washboard, keyboard, vocals
Gunhild Carling was born in Sweden in 1975. She’s a Swedish jazz musician and multi-instrumentalist. Gunhild plays trombone, bagpipes, trumpet, recorder, string instruments (such as banjo, ukulele and harp), and will often showcase all of her skills in one song, sometimes casually breaking into a tap dance or song. Carling competed as a celebrity dancer in Let’s Dance 2014 on TV4, being placed third.
In 2013, she performed with her ‘Carling Big Band’ at the Royal Palace in Stockholm in the celebration of King Carl XVI Gustaf’s Ruby Jubilee. In 2016, Carling performed at King Carl XVI Gustaf’s 70th birthday celebration. She was recently featured as a singer and multi-instrumentalist in several of Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox’s adaptations of pop songs, which include a jazz swing version of Rick Astley’s “Never Going to Give You Up”, a 1920s jazz swing version of “Material Girl”, a vintage jazz version of Europe’s “The Final Countdown”, a jazz cover of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy”, and a 1920s hot jazz cover of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen”. She was featured at TEDxArendal, speaking about and playing trombone, which she has said is her favorite instrument. Carling often expresses her affection and respect for artists from early jazz, and especially the seminal New Orleans period. Among others, she refers to the influences of Louis Armstrong, Freddie Keppard, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Beiderbecke, and Billie Holiday. Holiday’s influence is patent in Carling’s singing style.
