Christmas Jazz – Grani50

6.12.2022 at 15.00 16.00

Come and celebrate Finland’s independence day and one last Grani50 event with Christmas jazz.
Jazz vocalist Mariah Hortans and guitarist Mathias Sandberg, who have toured the United States and played more than 650 concerts in almost every municipality from Utsjoki in the north to Hanko in the south, will embark on a 35-concert Christmas Jazz farewell tour in November/December 2022. The tour marks the release of their highly anticipated third and last duo album “Christmas at Last”.
Jazz guitarist and composer Mathias Sandberg is one of the hardest working jazz musicians in Finland. He has studied at Manhattan School of Music in New York and Berklee College of Music in Boston, and worked with artists such as Georg Riedel, Jukka Eskola, Teppo Mäkynen and Manuel Dunkel.
Mariah Hortans is a well respected singer, songwriter, producer, educator and voice actor.
The Mariah Hortans / M Sandberg Duo albums “Christmas Jazz”, “Another Jazzy Christmas” and their latest release “Christmas at Last” will definitely get you into the Christmas spirit in style. Classical Christmas compositions by Sibelius, Händel and Schubert are interwoven with traditional Christmas carols, songs and hymns. The songs are sung in English, Finnish and Swedish, and have been rearranged and harmonized with the jazzy harmonies, swinging rhythms and melodic improvisation the duo has become known for.
