Classically trained Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis first made his name playing with fiery European gypsy guitarists, before developing a more personal style that has taken him on a busy touring schedule around the world. Now widely regarded as the inheritor of the Stéphane Grappelli crown, Kliphuis breathes new life into existing styles with his high-energy brand of Classical, Gypsy Jazz, Celtic and world music. His improvised sound is totally new yet steeped in tradition.
Together with Nigel Clark on guitar and Roy Percy on double bass, the Tim Kliphuis Trio re-defines the music of many well-known composers to create an intensely moving concert experience. Written and recorded in lockdown, ‘The Five Elements’ is an ode to the earth and looks ahead to a brighter future; of course, expect the usual mix of Django, Richard Strauss and Chieftains!
