Ian Shaw (UK)
That the singer and pianist from Wales is also a brilliant stand-up comedian is proven above all by his witty announcements. Alone at the piano, Ian Shaw has extended possibilities as an entertainer: Interrupting songs, responding to shouts - in short, taking communication with the audience to the extreme. In 2016, Ian Shaw, who is considered the best jazz singer on the island, won over many Salzburg fans with cover versions of songs from Joni Mitchell to David Bowie. Finally, he is back and presents highly musical entertainment of the British kind.
