Belgian artist Andy Houscheid and his trio, accompanied by Luxembourgish jazz singer Claire Parsons, will be performing at the CAPE in Ettelbruck this Saturday 21 November 2020 at 20:00.
Due to travel restrictions in Germany, Konstantin Wecker and Jo Barnikel will not be joining Andy Houscheid for this concert as initially planned; their concert has been postponed until 21 May 2021. Instead, Andy Houscheid will be joined this Saturday by his trio and Claire Parsons this Saturday.
The four musicians will present music from the trio's new project "Ensemble" as well as a few songs from Claire Parsons' new album, which stands out for its melancholy sweetness and astonishing musical maturity. The reunion of Andy Houscheid and Claire Parsons on stage represents the meeting not only of two young musical talents from Luxembourg and the Greater Region but also that of two musical universes.
Belgian singer-songwriter Andy Houscheid composes and writes songs in German with a rich musical facet and authentic lyrics, through which he leads the listener into exciting, powerful and harmonious sound worlds. At the age of five, he discovered a passion for key instruments, giving his first performance aged 10 and becoming an organist at 11. He then studied organ at the conservatory in Esch-sur-Alzette. His growing interest in Jazz took him to the Brussels Conservatory where he studied Jazz piano and obtained his master's degree there in 2009. His love for the stage took over, quickly followed by several performances with Jazz artists from the Benelux and Germany. He released his first album "Von hier aus weiter" in 2013. Three years later, he released his second album "Scheinen". Backed by Konstantin Wecker, he released his third album on the latter's label "Sturm und Klang". The Andy Houscheid trio features Andy on vocals and piano, Olivier Chavet on drums and Werner Lauscher on bass.
Anglo-Luxembourgish Jazz singer Claire Parsons plays and composes in several groups and was named "best emerging musician" at the Luxembourg Music Awards 2018. She released her first solo album "In Geometry" with the Double Moon Records label this year.
