Acclaimed guitarist Remi Harris and his band present an eclectic show featuring music ranging from the acoustic jazz of the 30s and 40s to the electric blues of the 60s and 70s; influenced by such greats as Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green and Wes Montgomery.
From the age of seven, Remi has dedicated himself to a life of guitar. His playing has taken him from busking on the streets of his local towns to performing at many prestigious events and venues around the world, including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Buckingham Palace, BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with Jamie Cullum, and on national radio and television.
The show features an eclectic mix of jazz and blues standards, original compositions, improvisations and new arrangements of familiar tunes, with Remi playing a variety of acoustic and electric guitars. He will be joined on stage by Tom Moore on double and electric bass, and Shane Dixon on drums.
