    Friday´s Blues & AUGUST THARRATS DUO

    Tickets Personalize your visit

    Blues, swing & jazz with:


    August Tharrats, piano. Xavi Hinojosa, drums

    Without a doubt August Tharrats is the pioneer of Blues and Boogie Woogie piano in Catalonia. At the age of 4 he discovered the Blues by listening to Ray Charles, Louis Armstrong, Lionel Hampton ...

    He is a totally self-taught piano virtuoso and he has approached this music with humility, creating a very personal language. Perhaps for this reason musicians like Teddy Edwards, Gene "Mighty Flea" Connors or B.B.King have congratulated him on his way of playing the blues.

    An admirer of Kansas City school pianists such as Jay McShann, he is currently a prestigious bluesman on the national scene for his interpretive quality and honesty on stage.

    With his unbeatable technique and undeniable feeling, he is a musician capable of captivating the audience with a personal style full of blues, boogie-woogie and swing with enormous communication skills.

    On this occasion he is accompanied by Xavi Hinojosa, a drummer who is mainly inspired by the great jazz masters of all times such as "Philly" Joe Jones, Mickey Roker, Bobby Durham or Roy Haynes among others, as some of the most influential in his stylistic development. He stands out for the versatility and musicality, he knows how to impress on the songs, being currently one of the most active drummers on the Barcelona music scene.

    In today's concert they will offer us a tour of different blues and swing standards, from New Orleans to Kansas City or Chicago.
