Erika Stucky is a jazz singer, actress, performer and accordionist - and one of the most exceptional Swiss artists. Born and raised as a daughter of hippie parents in San Francisco, she spent her youth in a small mountain village in Switzerland. There she fell for traditional folksong and enthused herself for yodeling. Up until today she mixes alpine punk with jazz avant-garde. Scatting and yodelling, yearning like crazy and swinging like mad, she is at times groovy, wistful, nostalgic. Pop, jazz and folk flow together into a lusty and amusing avant-garde entertainment mix. On the occasion of her 25th stage anniversary she's now proud to present "Stucky Live", a collection of previously unreleased live tracks with a.o. the Sophisticrats, the Bubble Family, the numerous "Bones" Ray Anderson (tb), Art Baron (tb), Matt Perrine (sousaphone) Earl McIntyre (tuba), Jon Sass (tuba), Bertl Mütter (tb), the WDR Bigband conducted by George Gruntz and "favourite bang" Lucas Niggli (dr).
