As mentioned, Bob Dylan will open this special festival. On July 11th it will be the turn of a fantastic jazz performance with Brad Mehldau, today one of the most successful and versatile pianists thanks to his executive intensity which makes him one with his piano. He will perform as a trio with Larry Grenadier on double bass and Jeff Ballard on drums, which refers to the best examples expressed by this demanding and refined formula. In 1986 the Branford Marsalis Quartet was formed and remains active almost continuously and stable in formation, producing a series of extraordinary records during this period.
On July 12 Rhiannon Giddens, an intelligent and sensitive artist who delves deeply into the roots of American folk music and beyond, in duo with the Italian guitarist and partner Francesco Turrisi, and Snarky Puppy, who has quickly become one of the most popular names in the world of jazz and fusion, terms which in their case however are reductive as their music escapes any attempt at classification precisely because of their ability to effortlessly concentrate the sounds of contemporaneity.
On July 13 Ben Harper with The Innocent Criminals: from his debut album “Welcome To The Cruel World” (1994), Ben Harper has released an extraordinary series of records that have consecrated him as a songwriter and performer of unique power capable of span genres with an unmatched skill at blending the personal and the political.
Il 16 luglio, unica data in Italia, un grande rocker, altrettanto grande bluesman, spesso entrambi: Joe Bonamassa è semplicemente uno dei più grandi chitarristi di tutti i tempi, che fonde cuore e intelligenza musicale con una profonda cultura della musica popolare.
Tickets for these concerts and for the previously announced Stewart Copeland (July 14) and Paolo Conte (July 15) are on sale. You can find all the info on official site of Umbria Jazz.

I will never forget July 2022. I discovered Perugia, a wonderful city. I fulfilled my dream of meeting Johnny Depp!! The magical atmosphere of Umbria Jazz will always remain in my heart... And then, Borgo Colognola. Here, between peace, relaxation and nature, I have left a part of me forever...

La mia Pasqua 2021 a Borgo Colognola è stata una sorpresa inaspettata. La quiete di quei giorni sembra distante secoli. Non vedo l’ora di poterci tornare con degli amici e andare in giro per l’Umbria per scoprire i tesori nascosti di questa splendida zona d’Italia.
