  • Saturday 12th 12:40am: Arnaud Dolmen 'Tonbé Lévé' (Zinc Bar)

The Rest-of-The-World trail

The largest foreign legions at the Festival might be British and French, but there's plenty of other foreign musicians who are not based in New York and will be playing rare concerts:
  • Friday 11th 11:40PM. ÌFÉ (Bowery Ballroom)
  • Saturday 12th 6:40PM. Tuomo & Markus featuring Verneri Pohjola (Subculture)
  • Saturday 12th 7:40PM. Mathias Eick (Le Poisson Rouge)
  • Saturday 12th 10PM. Takuya Kuroda (Mercury Lounge)

The Chicago trail

The Chicago scene's vitality and vibrancy is so strong that its performers have often stolen the show at previous editions of the Winter JazzFest.
