Benoit Viellefon & his Hot Club officially marked the start of the spiegeltent last night in Harrogate. (29 June 2018)
A regular to the spiegeltent, he played to a sell-out audience.
Lizzie Brewster from the Harrogate International Festivals said:
What a fantastic first night. Benoit Viellefon and His Hot Club were the perfect way to open the Spiegeltent with their unique combination of sultry sounds, Hollywood elegance and a little French ooh la la packaged up in an evening of swing and jazz.
Last night set the bar high, and there is so much to look forward to over the next week with a fantastic selection of events taking place in this magical tent. It’s the perfect summer night out in the centre of Harrogate, and a great way to experience a whole range of musicians and performers.
Tonight will see Ayanna Witter-Johnson play, with some tickets still available. See https://harrogateinternationalfestivals.com/whats-on/
See the video of Ayanna at the MOBO’s.
For those looking for the video that we took on the night – it’s in post production and should be on-line later today.
