The Andy Lawrenson Trio's Show for 2017 is THE GYPSY JAZZ CELEBRATION. Originally pioneered by Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli in 1930’s Paris, the distinctive style of Gypsy Jazz is instantly recognisable - acoustic, up-tempo, alternately joyous, exotic, passionate and full of pathos. The Trio mix the instrumental style with songs from the great American Songbook, blending style, flair, humour and astonishing dexterity to produce a show to warm your heart and entertain any audience.

“Great Music, full house! What more could we ask for?” (Chris Sherburn, Event management, Newcastle Jazz Cop-op, February 2016)
