-Christmas concert at La Pedrera 20/12/19:
The Barcelona Big Blues Band, under the direction of bassist Ivan Kovacevic, combines a group of good musicians who create an energetic, wild and, at the same time, sophisticated sound. Through his arrangements, Kovacevic applies to the Big Band all the experience and criteria he has acquired and the result is a stream of sound in the tradition of bands like T-Bone Walker or Johnny Otis. Focused on accompanying the best rhythm’n’blues artists nationally and internationally, with a wide sonority with personality, they have performed at various jazz and blues festivals and in venues such as the Jamboree or the Palau de la Música. On this occasion, with the solid voice of Myriam Swanson, they will offer a concert with typical themes of Christmas and others more unknown and surprising, in the purest American style, recalling the great rock’n’roll orchestras and classic blues rhythm, with a single objective: to make the public of La Pedrera enjoy Christmas blues with all their soul!

– Concert by Maria del Mar Bonet 27/12/19:
END OF TOUR – 50 YEARS OF STAGES
Maria del Mar Bonet has been on stage for more than fifty years and will celebrate her closing tour at La Pedrera Auditorium. During these years he has sung many of the songs that are part of the more than fifty years of stages, in many towns and cities of Catalonia, the Islands, the Valencian Community, in the capitals of Spain and on both shores of the Mediterranean in Greece, Italy and Tunisia and Egypt. The Mediterranean has always been the reference point of his artistic and personal life, considering it his source of inspiration. From his vast Balearic ship, with an impeccable discography and an indisputable taste for beauty and composition, he has paraded his music all over the world in his own language, collaborating with dozens of artists from all over the world. He has received international awards and published almost forty albums that form a solid and coherent trajectory, based on his relationship with the public, from the stages of his hundreds of concerts. The concert in the Auditorium of La Pedrera will be a very special party at home and will put the final touch to more than three years of tour and celebrations of one of the great voices of reference of the popular song.

Many, many years ago Andrew got a trunk in an antique shop. I thought it was a simple old trunk, but later I would discover that extraordinary things were going on inside it. Andrew is now over 100 years old but the magic of the trunk preserves the young. In gratitude, he walks the streets of all the cities sharing the illusions with the people he meets. Visual spectacle, theatrical magic and gestural humor accompanied by music and public participation. It is set in the 20s and 30s, both for the music and for the wardrobe and decoration.

La Bleda has been waiting all year for this moment: Christmas. Take the road to Bethlehem . . . but he realizes he can’t go. He doesn’t know the way to visit the boy. As she searches, she will do so with songs and carols that will help her find him, but it will be the help of three magical characters that will enlighten her to know where she has to go. Towards Bethlehem there are no people!
