Blues to Bop finally returns to Lugano with an outstanding programme and international guests.

A line-up that will give ample space to American roots music, interpreted by well-known musicians and some of the most interesting youngsters on the blues scene. On Saturday 27 August, Blues to Bop will host a special evening of Estival Jazz.
