Twickenham Jazz Club's Past Gigs

Django Reinhardt Songbook – Future Fable

Join us for a fascinating evening to enjoy and explore the evocative music and world of the legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt. Learn about his stormy and dramatic life and listen to both his popular and lesser known pieces played by some of the finest exponents of his art.

Violinist Tobie Medland is the director of the famous ‘London’s ‘Gypsy Jazz festival’. His enthusiasm and passion for Django’s work is infectious and informative and shared by the members of this brilliant ensemble.

Django Reinhardt 1910-1953

Django was a Manouche, Romany, Belgian Jazz violinist and guitarist who famously lost his 3rd and 4th fingers in a caravan fire at the age of 18. Undeterred he abandoned his violin and banjo, and concentrated on playing guitar.

His extraordinary musicianship still inspires musicians and intellectuals 6 decades after his passing.

Sadly like many brilliant musicians his life was short as he collapsed after playing at Paris nightclub at the tender age of 43 but his legacy continues through his music. The music is joyous and uplifting

This night promises to be another classic and memorable concert at our unique club.
