DjangoFest NorthWest: Paulus Schäfer Quartet

September 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, Langley          —

Regarded as Gypsy Jazz royalty, Paulus Schäfer is known globally as one of the most gifted guitarists of his generation. The Dutch Sinti Gypsy is one of a small handful of contemporary world class guitarists bringing the musical style first played by his forefather, the great Django Reinhardt to the international jazz stage. Simply put, Paulus is a true master currently defining the modern sound of gypsy jazz, expect to be blown away by his staggering virtuosity and beautifully lyrical guitar playing, a must for lovers of real acoustic music.

Award-winning Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis has created a brand new style that embraces classical, gypsy jazz and folk. Hailed as a ‘current-day improvising Paganini’, his inclusive and innovative approach to music has united audiences and is influencing a new generation of string players.
