SHIRLEY HOFMANN

Uncompromising aficionados of Fellini film music composer Nino Rota, Shirley Hofmann and Ben Jeger, alias Ginger and Fred, pay tribute to this icon of chromatic tonal shifts and quirky « Farfisa » jazz. In their program you will find no loopers. Be it a toy piano, a garden hose, a euphonium, an accordion or the Solothurn Workers Union Marching Band Bass Drum, Ginger and Fred will whisk you away to their world of impeccably crafted, melodious waltzes and lilting singing saw. “Step right up” to enter their Fellini-esque world of bizarre characters and thick moustaches; a music that inspires its listeners to imagine the film; a timeless world full of surprises.

Let yourself be swept up….
