Flagstaff Arts Council and The Arboretum at Flagstaff are pleased to present Jessica Fichot with special guest Vincent Z. in concert at The Arboretum on August 2, 2014. Doors open at 4:45 pm and the concert is from 5:30 – 7 pm with an intermission.
Los Angeles-based chanteuse/songwriter Jessica Fichot is a lot like her hometown of Paris: French at heart, but with a soul that’s truly international. Drawing from her multi-ethnic French / Chinese / American upbringing, her music fuses styles and languages, taking the listener on a twisting journey out of the French chanson tradition, into the lands of gypsy jazz, Chinese 1940’s swing, international folk, and into the wilderness of her imagination. Following the acclaimed release of her albums “Le Chemin” (2007) and “Le Secret” (2012), she has performed packed venues in France, China, Spain, Mexico, Canada and across the U.S – backed by her fiery band (clarinet/sax, upright bass, drums and guitar), and armed with her accordion, toy piano and multilingual vocals.
The concert takes place on August 2, 2014. Doors open at 4:45 pm and the concert is from 5:30 – 7 pm with an intermission. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner. Tickets are $14 for members of The Arboretum and Flagstaff Arts Council; $18 for non-members; and $9 for kids 6-16. To avoid an online purchasing fee, please call The Coconino Center for the Arts at (928) 779-2300.
