Award-winning violinist Tim Kliphuis (NL) is a legend in the gypsy world. His Trio with Nigel Clark (guitar) and Roy Percy (bass) re-defines the music of J.S. Bach, Django and the Chieftains in an intensely moving concert experience.
Hot off the heels of their second release with Sony Classical, “Concertos”, the Trio take to the road again for their 12th season, having racked up successes at classical festivals, concert halls, competitions and clubs worldwide. A continuing journey into the heart and soul, they play only one genre: MUSIC.
