Shades of Django

Saturday 1st June
Venue: Harris Museum, 1pm 


Shades of Django play acoustic jazz in the style of the famous Quintet du Hot Club de France and its seminal musicians, Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Shades of Django present music from the 1930s and 1940s in an authentic style, together with anecdotes which explain some of the context of this inter-war fusion of swing jazz and traditional gypsy music.


Shades of Django are: Stuart Hampton-Reeves (guitar), Lawrence Woof (violin), Nigel Hitchen (guitar), Paul Murphy (guitar) and John Wilton (bass).

The Festival is sponsored by the Arts Council, the University of Central Lancashire, the Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries and the Creative Arts Development Group. We are partners with the Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Festival, the Preston Caribbean Carnival and Making a Mark and we are supported by Preston City Council.
