The trio of musicians that will be touring with 'The Golden Age of Swing'

Barcelona’s civic centres will be hopping to the rhythms of swing

Five of the city’s centres will host concerts from 26 January to 17 February.

On 26 January, the trio made up of Apel·les Carod on violin, Cristian Hernández on guitar and Manel Fortià on bass will begin a mini-tour around a number of Barcelona’s civic centres. The concert tour, which goes under the name The Age of Swing, is part of the networked project Música> BCN 2017-2018 and aims to take spectators back to the 1930s and 40s, which were the golden age of swing.

The trio will revive the melodies made famous by musicians like Glen Miller, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Benny Goodman, as well as making incursions into the Parisian sounds of gypsy jazz popularised by guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stephane Grappelli.

CC La Sagrera will host the first concert on 26 January, and the tour will also call in at CC El Sortidor on 8 February 8, CC Can Verdaguer on 15 February, CC Guinardó on 16 February 16 and finally at CC Sarrià on 17 February. Admission to the concerts is free.
