Tim Kliphuis Trio & Friends – 10th Anniversary concert
Award-winning Tim Kliphuis Trio invites favourite musicians Greg Lawson, Seonaid Aitken and Su-a Lee to join them in a celebration of the Trio’s 10 years on the road. An electrifying show with elements of gypsy jazz, classical and folk, featuring their greatest successes plus a taste of the new-released Vivaldi album “Reflecting the Seasons”.
The Tim Kliphuis Trio met in Glasgow in 2006 and embarked on their first UK tour that same year. Their electrifying performances soon found them at the Richard Strauss Festival, Celtic Connections and the Amsterdam Canal Concert, to an audience of 10.000. Recent successes include concerts with the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra and Tallin Chamber Orchestra, and a 3-record deal with SONY Classical.
Tim Kliphuis (violin) combines the perfection of classical and the freedom of gypsy music. Since his debut with Belgian gypsy jazz guitarist Fapy Lafertin he has shared the stage with fiddle star Frankie Gavin, accordeon giant Richard Galliano and the late guitar legend, Les Paul.
Nigel Clark (guitar) moves easily between the worlds of folk, rock and jazz. He was a member of Scottish group Hue & Cry and collaborated with singers Moya Brennan and Gloria Gaynor, as well as guitarist Jan Akkerman and Scottish jazz legend Carol Kidd.
Roy Percy (bass) brings the driving rhythms of New Orleans to the Trio; his unique slap bass techniques are unrivaled in Europe. He is a member of the Classic Jazz Orchestra, Scotland’s premier gypsy jazz group Swing 2016 and worked with reedsmen Forrie Cairns, Alan Barnes and Duke Heitger.
Francesca Hunt (viola) is a member of the RNSO and has played in other orchestras including the London Philhamonic and BBC Scottish Symphony. She has played all over the world including at the Proms.
Seonaid Aitken (violin and vocals) was trained at Guildhall in London, heads Glasgow-based gypsy jazz band Rose Room and performs with Scottish Opera. She has recorded for BBC’s ‘Coast’ programme, with Treacherous Orchestra and Sunshine in Leith.
Su-a Lee (cello and singin g saw) is assistant cello leader in the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and a founding member of Mr McFalls Chamber. She has worked with luminaries such as Yo-Yo Ma, Indian sarod player Ustad Amjad Ali Khan and ‘Cream’ bassist Jack Bruce.
