Con brio literally translates as ‘with vigour, with spirit’. And that is most definitely the best way to describe the music of our find of the year. Already acclaimed by artists such as Meshell Ndegeocello and Trombone Shorty, the Americans of Con Brio are here to conquer Europe! They have chosen our festival as one of the first dates on their European tour to distil their intense, irresistible soul. Led by the ultra-charismatic Ziek McCarter, these young San Franciscans are sure to have you under their spell.
Line-up: Ziek McCarter: vocals / Benjamin Andrews: guitar / Jonathan Kirchner: bass / Andrew Laubacher: drums / Patrick Glynn: keyboards / Marcus Stephens: saxophone / Brendan Liu: trumpets.
Album: Paradise (V2 Music)
