Hannes Anrig passed away

With great sadness we have known the demise of our friend, EBU member, artistic Director of the Magic Blues Festival and board member of the Swiss Blues Society, Mr. Hannes Anrig

Last year he was honoured with our Blues Behind The Scenes Award for his tireless work to introduce blues and early jazz in Europe since the early seventies and especially New Orleans music either live or producing for more than fifteen years a series of countless and incredible albums with the top or New Orleans musicians through the record label Blueshouse Productions, as well as organizing meetings and parties with Louisiana musicians all over Switzerland.

At the last EBC in Horsens, he was not in good form, but he had pleasure to be together with the Swiss group who came there.

Rest in peace Hannes, we will miss you.
