The Robin Nolan Trio 2013 UK Tour

One of the worlds best loved and highest regarded gypsy jazz guitarists is set to return to the Shrewsbury Coffeehouse on Sunday 2nd March at 8pm. The Robin Nolan Trio are planning their visit the week before they play London's prestigious 02 as part of their annual UK tour.

Legendary in the Django Reinhardt world, Robin Nolan has played with every top Gypsy Jazz artist and headlined every major Gypsy Jazz festival across the globe. Based in Amsterdam he's been lauded for his musical genius and sensibilities by some of the greatest musicians of all time. The late George Harrison, who named Robin as his favorite guitarist said “In these days of cacophony it’s great to hear some proper music!” he  booked Robin's band many times for his own private parties.  Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman quoted “Robin Nolan is so amazingly good… as soon as I record something in the spirit of Django Reinhardt, I’ll book him a flight and bring him into the studio.” .

In 2013, having sold out the Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room for Jazz FM Robin went on to sign a record deal with Beatle George Harrison’s son Dhani. They released his new album “Gypsy Blue” last summer and have since gone on to promote the record in the USA taking in numerous live shows and appearances. The trio also features top Dutch double bassist Arnoud Van Den Berg alongside locally based acoustic guitar virtuoso Chris Quinn. Expect some of the finest, hottest guitar playing you are ever likely to hear, don't miss this one!....
