Hot Club du Nord:
Emma Fisk (violin) David Harris & Bradley Johnston (Guitars) Bruce Rollo (Double Bass)
Happy Birthday Django & Stephane!
On January 26th 1908 Stefano Grappelli was born in the Hôpital Lariboisère in Paris. Almost exactly two years later on January 23rd, Jean Reinhardt was born in Liberchies, Belgium.
Join Hot Club du Nord to celebrate the birthdays of these two musicians and the musical alchemy that resulted from their meeting! Enjoy an hour of Gypsy Jazz featuring tunes spanning the years of Grappelli & Reinhardts’ collaboration.
Emma Fisk’s Hot Club du Nord bring to life the classic 1930s and 40s repertoire of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli’s Hot Club de France. Featuring British Jazz Awards Nominee Emma Fisk on violin and the exceptional talents of Bradley Johnston and David Harris (guitars) and Bruce Rollo (double bass), the band encompasses a wealth of experience, knowledge and love of the hot club/ gypsy jazz style. Their musically sparkling performances; engaging manner and infectious joy in the music have made them a popular choice across concert halls, theatres, art centres, village halls, festivals and jazz clubs.
“For lovers of the classic Stephane Grappelli-Django-Reinhardt approach, this is right up there amongst the best in the UK.” Paul Bream, Jazz Alert
“From the opening bars of Honeysuckle Rose to the final J’attendrai the magic unfolded, taking us back to the days when Django and Stéphane were the toast of Paree. Fisk displays amazing control, Emma doesn’t play the violin, the violin is as much a part of her as the hand holding the bow or the fingers that move with such dexterity up and down the fingerboard. Total mastery (if that isn’t a gender contradiction!) Flanked by Birkett and Harris thrashing away on their Maccaferri guitars, and Rollo slapping bass with a gentle subtlety this was gypsy jazz/swing at its finest.” Lance Liddle, Bebop Spoken Here
