The Muckrakers Live!
If you’ve been to any of the four last GIJCs, chances are you saw GIJN’s own band, The Muckrakers. Formed at a jam at the first Lillehammer conference in 2008, the R&B group went on to play to packed crowds from around the world in Geneva, Kiev, and Rio. The international band — featuring Ana Simonovska on vocals (Macedonia), Mark Hunter on guitar (France/US), Dave Kaplan on harmonica (US), and Geir Aage Vollan on bass (Norway) — will return with its original cast to where it all began.

Bring your dancing shoes and come party as The Muckrakers burn through a set list of great R&B, boogie woogie, and rockin' blues, from Aretha and Ray Charles to Dylan and The Stones.
