'YanniH Arts Promotion' presents, LIVE IN THE HYST...
ROBIN NOLAN TRIO... from Amsterdam - one of the world's most highly acclaimed & original Gypsy Jazz acts!
With over 2 million hits on his YouTube channel, Gypsy Jazz SecretsTM Robin Nolan is without doubt one of the world's leading authorities on all things Gypsy Jazz. Over the last two decades he has built up a massive & ever-growing fan base of musicians & music lovers alike. His Trio has played the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois, France, numerous times as the headlining act & he has travelled the globe, taking in shows at many of the world's venues & festivals... North Sea Jazz, Montreux Jazz Festival, London's Royal Albert Hall & New York's Jazz At The Lincoln Centre... to name just a few.
Robin Nolan's celebrity endorsers are a 'who's who' of the 'guitar god' world! The Beatles' George Harrison, named him as HIS FAVOURITE GUITARIST... Rolling Stones bassist, Bill Wyman was so impressed with Robin's playing that he included him in his project-band of master-musicians, 'Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings'. Hank Marvin was inspired to join Robin at his 2018 Australian Guitar Retreat... & picked up a few tips!!
"In these days of cacophany, it's good to hear some proper music!" (George Harrison)
"You play a mighty fine guitar, Robin Nolan" (Willie Nelson)
"Robin Nolan has the touch, the tone, & the technique to make 40's Euro-Swing sound vital & fresh in these digital days" (Guitar Player Magazine, USA)
"Robin Nolan is so amazingly good... as soon as I record something in the spirit of Django Reinhardt, I'll book him a flight & bring him into the studio" (Bill Wyman, Rolling Stones)
While primarily inspired by the music of Django Reinhardt, the Robin Nolan Trio is not content to simply reproduce Django's songs. They are recognised for their original compositions, contemporary approach & 'gypsy swing versions' of pop & rock classics... especially AC/DC anthems!!
UK guitarist Chris Quinn & double-bass sensation from Holland, Arnoud Van Den Berg provide the perfect back-up for Robin's improvisation & expression. Expect some of the most soulful & sensitive acoustic music you will ever see & hear!
