REMI HARRIS TRIO
Gypsy swing, jazz and blues
The Remi Harris Trio take gypsy swing characteristics and infuse them with influences from jazz, blues, rock’n’roll, funk, world music and more. They play an eclectic mix of original compositions, jazz standards and new arrangements of music from Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, Peter Green and more. The show features Remi on a variety of acoustic and electric guitars accompanied by a hot club rhythm section of acoustic guitar and double bass, and it includes solo, duet and trio playing interspersed with Remi’s commentary about the history of the music and the guitars he plays.
Remi and his trio have toured worldwide as well as performing at Buckingham Palace, Montreal Jazz Festival, BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with Jamie Cullum, on BBC 4 Television and live on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3.
