*FEATURED MUSICIAN 6/11/11: JAMIE JUPITER The Fair’s featured musician between 12h00 and 14h00 on the 6th is the popular and talented Jamie Jupiter who performs solo as a mind-blowing one-man band. By looping an impressive array of rootsy percussion and indigenous instruments with guitar and bass, he creates a sound that is both modern and authentic. Jamie has toured the UK, USA and Canada, Reunion island and Germany with “The African Music Workshop Ensemble”, played with the glam-rock sensation “The Honeymoon Suites” in the 90’s and won a Fleur du Cap for best cabaret 2009 with the mock country show “Angels on Horseback”. Come and listen to him stretch his musical muscles, from playing traditional African music, delectable-dub, high-kicking gypsy grooves, fun-filled disco-funk, to ecstatic techno tribal trance.
** FEATURED FILM 6/11/11: ‘Peaceful Warrior’ with Nick Nolte This inspirational film will be repeated: 11h00-13h00 and 13h30-15h30
