Schaffhauser Jazz Festival to start on the 6th May 2015

Since its inception, the Schaffhauser Jazz Festival has focussed its work on presenting each year the most innovative Swiss artists in the fields of jazz and improvised music. This year the Festival, at its 26th edition, will take place between the 6th and 9th May 2015 targeting a local as well as an international public.

The programming each year chosses the artists not on a commercial basis but with the aim of identifying the artistic projects that can reflect the vitality and variety of Swiss jazz and the complex mix of cultures that is Switzerland nowadays. This year the programme will include the Biel-Bienne Jazz & ImproOrchestra, Yilian Cañizares, Sebastian Strinning Kerrin, Kornelia Bruggmann performing the "Canti del Capricorno" in an impressive location inside the town's fortress, and many others.
