Zermatt Unplugged: Christmas concert and two acts during the Christmas week


Zermatt Unplugged, the somewhat different music festival, will present three very special events during the Christmas week: The Bach Collegium Zürich will perform “A Venetian Christmas”. James Walsh and Marlon Roudette will play concerts at the Vernissage.

For the second time, Zermatt Unplugged is presenting “Season Opening” concerts during the Christmas 2013 week. The Bach Collegium Zürich will perform “A Venetian Christmas” by Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672) at the Pfarrkirche on 27 December 2013.
More old friends will return to Zermatt, among them James Walsh on 27 December 2013. Together with Starsailor, he was part of the first Zermatt Unplugged in 2007 and returned in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The Englishman has many fans among Zermatt’s locals and guests who were carried away by his Vernissage performances and his Sunnegga Session.

Caribbean vibes
Marlon Roudette, whose concert at the Vernissage closed the Zermatt Unplugged Festivals in April 2013, missed the Matterhorn so much that he immediately accepted the invitation for the upcoming Unplugged event. The Englishman with Caribbean roots caused a veritable storm of enthusiasm at the Vernissage in April. On 28 December 2013, Marlon Roudette will once again bring some easy-going Caribbean vibes to the Matterhorn village.
