“incredible guitarist… I’m absolutely blown away by his talent” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6 Music
Following last year’s performances at the legendary Montreal Jazz Festival, playing alongside Jamie Cullum at the BBC Proms and gaining critical acclaim for his second album, 2017 has already seen the Remi Harris Trio headline the Django Festival in Oslo, Norway and perform at one of London’s finest Jazz Clubs Pizza Express, Soho. Acoustic Guitar Magazine selected Remi, as one of the five “Acoustic Acts of 2017″.
Concert goers can expect a night of virtuoso guitar based Gypsy Swing, infused with influences from Jazz, Blues, Rock’n’Roll, Funk and World Music, with repertoire from Django Reinhardt, Peter Green, Wes Montgomery, Jimi Hendrix and Charlie Parker to name a few. Legendary jazz guitarist Martin Taylor MBE recently commented “Remi is one of the most exciting young guitarists in the Gypsy Jazz world”.
Remi’s latest album “In On The 2” has already received rave reviews from national publications. “Far from being a slavish acolyte of Django’s holy order, his choice of repertoire and diverse influences bring something genuinely fresh to the genre…” Guitarist Magazine Presents Acoustic
“2016 was a big year for us and I’m really looking forward to carrying the momentum through 2017 with our tour dates” – Remi Harris
With over 150 dates in the diary for 2017, Remi’s growing fan base will have lots of opportunity to see him perform across the country. For dates and event information check out www.remiharris.com
