Tim Kliphuis has been hailed as a contemporary improvising “Paganini”. He has shared the stage with Richard Galliano, Frankie Gavin, Les Paul and many gypsy jazz groups including The Rosenberg Trio. He has a busy international schedule including work with The Hague Philharmonic, is an in-demand educator at competitions, masterclasses and conservatoires and is the author of best-selling book “Gypsy Jazz Violin”.

Nigel Clark is an awe-inspiring guitar virtuoso with a unique sound, and has worked with the biggest names in jazz, folk and rock including Gloria Gaynor, Moya Brennan, Jan Akkerman, Philip Catherine, Carla Bley, Steve Swallow and Scottish hit band Hue and Cry. He toured the Far East with legendary jazz singer Carol Kidd and has played the music of Django Reinhardt all his life.

Roy Percy’s bass sound is rooted in New Orleans and Jump-Jive, bringing the Trio raw street rhythms and infectious grooves.

His unique bass slapping techniques, unrivalled in Europe, and his subtle dynamic feel make for a great range of emotions.
