Violin maestro returns to Artsreach

AWARD-winning Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis, a legend in the gypsy world, brings his trio to Dorset for a short Artsreach tour, at Blandford parish church on Thursday 7th November, Yetminster’s Jubilee Hall on Friday 8th and Portesham village hall on Sunday 10th, all at 7.30pm.

In this new show, Brandenburg!, Kliphuis, with Nigel Clark (guitar) and Roy Percy (bass), re-defines the music of JS Bach, Django and the Chieftains to create an intensely moving concert experience ranging from classical to gypsy jazz to folk.

Hailed as a modern “improvising Paganini”, Kliphuis has an inclusive approach to music that unites audiences and is influencing a new generation of string players.
