Bebop Spoken There

Brian Dee: "I feel my generation had one advantage over today's players in that we were not musically educated in colleges, so we all sounded different. I could tell who it was just by the sound." - (Jazz Rag, Summer 2020).

Fiddles on Fire - Preview: Tim Kliphuis Trio - The Gypsy Seasons.

Tim Kliphuis Trio - The Gypsy Seasons @ The Sage Gateshead. May 4, 2013
The Sage Gateshead’s Fiddle on Fire Festival includes a performance and workshops by the world class violinist Tim Kliphuis. Classically trained, it was gypsy jazz that first enthralled the Dutchman. He has subsequently toured the world as a Hot Club specialist and this visit to the Sage sees him in the company of virtuoso guitarist Nigel Clark and bassist Roy Percy. Glaswegian Clark is equally at him playing pop (Hue & Cry) or as accompanist to jazz singer Carol Kidd. Percy has worked with the best of them - clarinettist Evan Christopher (a knock out at the Sage a few years ago), Bob Barnard and Marty Grosz to name but three and he is no stranger to Scottish country dance bands or rock-a-billy outfits. 
Kliphuis is a keen educator and there will be two opportunities during the day to participate in a workshop. Up for a Challenge is for those 14 years and above (12:15-1:30 pm) and First Steps: Welcome to Gypsy Jazz (3:00-4:15 pm) should serve as a welcome introduction to the art. For details contact the Sage box office: 0191 443 4666.
