Remi Harris Jazz and Blues Trio
Remi Harris is playing on Saturday 26 February at The Market Theatre in Ledbury.
Audiences will be treated to a night of eclectic musical entertainment, showcasing music ranging from the acoustic jazz and swing of the 30s and 40s, to the electric blues of the 60s and 70s. Expect new spins on jazz standards, improvisations, and original compositions from Remi’s keenly anticipated new album Forward.
One of the UK’s most exciting Jazz and Blues guitarists, Remi Harris has a growing international reputation for blending all of his influences into his own individual style of playing. Remi’s performance will feature a variety of acoustic and electric guitars, and he will be joined on stage by long term collaborators Tom Moore on double and electric bass, and Shane Dixon on drums.
Remi’s unique style draws inspiration from artists such as Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery and Led Zeppelin. He has performed at some of the most renowned events and venues in the world, including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Buckingham Palace, BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with Jamie Cullum, on BBC 4 Television and live on BBC Radio 2 & 3. The ease and warmth of Remi’s stage presence, together with his virtuoso talent, will have concert goers captivated by his passion for the guitar.
Remi has been performing with Tom Moore for over ten years, during which time they have developed a remarkable musical affinity. Since graduating from The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in 2011 where he is currently based, Tom has performed around the UK with a variety of bands and musical projects. Starting at a young age on guitar and quickly moving to the electric bass, he has appeared at prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall and The North Sea Jazz Festival, and more recently supporting Jools Holland.
Remi’s musical involvement with Shane Dixon goes back further still, to when the pair formed a band together while at school in Bromyard, Herefordshire. Shane has been drumming since the age of 11, and has been heavily influenced by drummers such as John Bonham and Mick Fleetwood. He has performed with some of the most acclaimed names in rock, including Ginger Wildheart and Man, and has maintained his musical connection with Remi for almost two decades.
