Cambridge Jazz Festival: The Django Workshop with Tim Kliphuis

Saturday 24th November
1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Gypsy jazz legend Tim Kliphuis rose to fame during his years with Gyosy guitarist Fapy Lafertin and soon was performing with other greats of the genre including The Rosenberg Trio and Angelo Debarre. Additionally, he also authored bestselling book Gypsy Jazz Violin.

In this workshop, Tim shows you how to improvise in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli, looking at chords, rhythm and ‘licks’ of the tunes Coquette, Minor Swing and Je Suis Seul Ce Soir. All instruments (grades 5 and above) welcome.

Later on in the evening, Tim Kliphuis Trio will be performing live, with support from Harp Bazaar.

Presented by Cambridge Jazz Festival in association with Cambridge Jazz Co-Op
