Tim Kliphuis Trio

Tim Kliphuis Trio

Internationally renowned legends, the Tim Kliphuis Trio perform "the most breathtaking instrumental show you'll hear this year", with their stunning musical blend of gypsy jazz, classical and folk music delivered with finesse.

Award-winning Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis breathes new life into existing styles with a high-energy and improvised sound.  He has been hailed as a contemporary improvising “Paganini” and has shared the stage with Richard Galliano, Frankie Gavin, Les Paul and many gypsy jazz groups including The Rosenberg Trio. Classically trained and widely regarded as Stéphane Grappelli’s heir, Kliphuis is a highly personal and inspiring performer, composer and educator.

Nigel Clark is an awe-inspiring guitar virtuoso with a unique sound, who has played the music of Django Reinhardt all his life.  He has worked with many big names in jazz, folk and rock including Gloria Gaynor, Moya Brennan, Carol Kidd and Scottish hit band Hue and Cry.

Roy Percy’s bass sound is rooted in New Orleans and Jump-Jive, bringing the Trio raw street rhythms and infectious grooves. His unique bass slapping techniques, unrivalled in Europe, and his subtle dynamic feel make for a great range of emotions.

Together their playful inventiveness and technical brilliance has wowed audiences across the world for over a decade.
