The mythical The Waterboys open tomorrow the XXII Jazz Festival of San Javier preceded by Fernando Rubio & The Inner Demons (27/06/2019)

After 40 years and 15 albums, The Waterboys continues to surprise with the sound of each new work thanks to the imprint of its charismatic leader, Scottish musician Mike Scott, founder and only permanent member of the band formed in 1983, which will perform in the first jazz night San Javier where he arrives with his latest album "Where The Action Is".

The new record of this legendary band referring to British folk and rock and roll, published just a month ago, has once again surprised its fans with a wide variety of musical and literary influences, always present in the music of The Waterboys .

Topics such as "Then She Made the Lasses O" inspired by a poem by Robert Burn, and "Pipe at The Gates of Down", inspired by the book "The Wind In the Willows", by Kenneth Grahame are among the 10 songs that complete this new disc published a month ago, produced by Paull Weller and Simone Dine, in which he also pays homage to The Clash guitarist, Mick Jones in "London Mike".

He also does it with Robert Parker and the soulful black soul of northern soul with the song that gives its name to the album "Where The Action Is", in which he covers the Parker classic "Let's Go Baby".

The talent of Mike Scott, singer, guitarist, pianist and composer, remains incombustible from his beginnings in music at the end of the 70s and reaches today with his usual ability to surprise his legion of followers without fear of surfing by different musical styles.

From his first album, "The Waterboys" (1983) in which critics found influences from Patti Smith or Bob Dylan to rock classics such as "A Pagan Place" (1984) or "This is The Sea" (1985), in the one that included its worldwide success "The Whole of the Moon", or "Fisherman's Blues", given to Irish and Scottish folk, The Waterboys has not stopped evolving without stopping returning to rock and folk as signs of identity as throughout its history.

The first chords of the night will sound with Fernando Rubio, one of the most prestigious musicians of the Region of Murcia who also turns 40 years of career, many of them linked to his band Ferroblues with which he passed through Jazz San Javier.

The guitarist, singer, harmonica player, composer and producer from Cartagena Fernando Rubio returns with his current band "The Inner Demons" and his latest album "Cheap Chinese Guitar", with which he returns to strip his American musical soul and his devotion to rock, country, blues, soul and roots music.

Fernando Rubio will play accompanied by his current group formed by Murcian musicians such as Joaquín Talismán;

Román García and Carlos Campoy, from Los Marañones, and Paco del Cerro.
