REMI Harris is an exciting young guitarist and composer.

Originally from Bromyard, he is widely regarded as one of the UK’s top gypsy jazz guitarists and has toured the UK, Australia and France as well as performing at Buckingham Palace and live on BBC Radio 2.

He started out as rock guitarist with the popular group Mars Bonfire but eventually found the format too limiting and in 2009 decided to concentrate on playing jazz.

Harris has appeared at some of the country’s leading music festivals, collaborated with guitar legends John Etheridge and Gary Potter and become a regular performer at Le Quecumbar, London’s home of gypsy jazz.

In The Remi Harris Gypsy Jazz Project, which is coming to Bromsgrove's Artrix on Saturday, August 2 Remi takes traditional gypsy jazz and swing characteristics and infuses them with influences from Bebop, Blues, Rock, world music, contemporary jazz and popular melodies.

The result is a performance that mesmerises and inspires every time.

The Remi Harris Gypsy Jazz Project is showing at Artrix Studio at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £12 and are available from the box office on 01527 577330 or artrix.co.uk.
