Toots in Brussels

As Jazz plays an important part in the city's life and history, Brussels Walks - Klare Lijn organise a guided tour on one of the most famous Belgian jazz legends ever: Toots (Thielemans). Born and bred in this city (rue Haute / Hoogstraat), this is where he will play his first instrument at a very young age. he receives his first harmonica for his seventh birthday but chooses the guitar for his first professional performances. After a first recording, he migrates to the United States, plays with major jazz musicians and often returns to Brussels. We carefully tread in his steps to tell you his story.

 

This tour will start from the statue of Queen Elisabeth (near Central Station) on Sunday 29 April 2018 at 14h30. Admittance fee is 5 euro per person.
