Swing from Paris
8 December 2017 | 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| £15
Often described as “the finest Gipsy Jazz in the Cotswolds”, Swing from Paris bring you the sounds of a chic Parisian Café and the French jazz of Django Reinhart and Stephane Grappelli.
They’ve been seen on the BBC’s Hairy Bikers, have appeared at many major jazz festivals including Cheltenham, Brecon and the Django Reinhardt Festival at Samois sur Seine, and have even performed at the opening of a service station for the pleasure of Prince Charles (it’s a long story). They present their own versions of tunes from across Europe and beyond – featuring music by Edith Piaf, Gershwin, Charles Trenet and the Hot Club de France.
Their latest album, Webster, has received airplay on BBC radio and here they are in action at Cheltenham Jazz Festival
With violin, guitars and double bass, expect stylish gipsy jazz and vintage swing…..from the Paris of the 1930s, right up to present day.
