Jonny Hepbir In Concert With Sephora Gypsy Jazz Quartet In Taunton Somerset Friday 26th July | Jonny Hepbir Trio Video From April Bridgwater Arts Centre Concert In Somerset | Gyspy Jazz Gigs In Kent

Jonny Hepbir with Sephora Gypsy Jazz Quartet at Creative Innovation Centre in Taunton, Somerset Friday 26th July

JONNY HEPBIR GYPSY JAZZ GUITARIST will be the guest of the Sephora Gypsy Jazz Quartet at the Creative Innovation Centre in Taunton, Somerset on Friday 26th July 2024.

'The hot acoustic swing of ‘Sephora’ captures the vibrant sound of 1930’s Paris. Their performance gives a rich and nostalgic experience, which includes Eastern European influences without ever losing the gypsy footprint of guitarist Django Reinhardt and the violin of Stephane Grappelli.'

About the Quartet

The brilliant Gypsy Jazz guitarist Jonny Hepbir has played with many of the great names in Gypsy Jazz today, including Bireli Lagrene, Lulu Reinhardt, Stochelo Rosenberg, Paulus Schäfer, Feigeli Prisor, Angelo Debarre, Rino van Hooijdonk and countless other fantastic players. That’s why its not surprise that his 30 years in the industry has made him Gypsy Jazz royalty, with Paul McCartney stating to Jonny, ‘you're good, very good”.

Violinist, Gina Griffen, is well known on the Bristol music scene. She has worked as a professional musician for over twenty years and is best known for her amazing improvisational violin/singing style and performances with the Bristol band The Schmoozenbergs.

Rhythm guitarist, Dave Lunniss, possesses a vast knowledge of gypsy jazz. His festival performances in the UK, Ireland, Silkeborg, Denmark together with appearances in The Savoy Hotel with ‘Le Jazz’ and at London’s Barbican, with ‘Swing 39’.

Bass player, Ron Phelan, originally from Dublin is in constant demand from the best musicians and performers touring the country. Together with Gina they provided backing music for the touring ‘No Fit State Circus’.

Speaking of Somerset, here's a short video clip from the JONNY HEPBIR TRIO concert in April at Bridgwater Arts Centre.

The sparks were flying that night! It was great with Pete on accordion, as rhythmically it gave the fast tunes a crazy gumbo type feel. Really good fun playing with the guys both here and in Bath the day after.
