Sunday, 26 Oct. 2014 / Event Hall Basel Fair
Sometimes just two chords are all it takes to tell story. An authentic and emotional voice can often move the heart and soul more profoundly than the well-trained vocal instrument of an opera singer. Basel newcomer James Gruntz and the down-to-earth Scottish queen of pop Amy Macdonald meet as two artists with different backgrounds, but with the same driving force. He graduated from jazz school and she is self-taught. He is a fresh face in the scene and she is an international superstar, but both know how to move their listeners with seemingly simple songs like real storytellers do.
