Andy Lawrenson Duo
Originally pioneered by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli in 1930’s Paris, the distinctive style of Gypsy Jazz is instantly recognisable – acoustic, up-tempo, alternately joyous, exotic, passionate and full of pathos. Andy and Simon mix the instrumental style with songs from the great American Songbook, blending style, flair, astonishing dexterity and humour to produce a show to warm the hearts and entertain any audience.
” We went to see Stephane Grappelli in 1982 – and you really do him justice!” (Dave Roberts, Helmsley Arts Centre, February 2016)
“Great Music, full house! What more could we ask for?” (Chris Sherburn, Event management, Newcastle Jazz Cop-op, February 2016)
