    The Romance of Gypsy Jazz

    As part of ‘Oakham Festival 2020’ we are delighted to present the Jonny Kerry Quartet playing a range of music inspired by Gypsy Jazz.

    Experience the magic of authentic gypsy jazz with this amazing jazz quartet consisting of accordion, two giutars and double-bass.

    The quartet features accordionist Jonny Kerry with guitarists Harry Diplock, Ducato Piotrowski and double-bassist Mike Green, performing dynamic and lyrical arrangements of both standards and original compositions that draw upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms.
