Regarded as Gypsy Jazz royalty, Paulus Schäfer is known globally as one of the most gifted guitarists of his generation. The Dutch Sinti Gypsy is one of a small handful of contemporary world class musicians bringing the musical style first played by his forefather, the great Django Reinhardt to the international jazz stage. Paulus is in constant demand across the globe, often headlining jazz festivals or performing theatre tours with his various ground breaking projects. Last year he was invited to join Al Di Meola for a sell out show at New York’s legendary Carnegie Hall, following the concert he was offered a return booking in 2018!
Simply put, Paulus is a true master, expect to be blown away by his staggering virtuosity, his impeccable timing and his humble and warm showmanship, an absolute must for lovers of real music.
Featuring Chris Quinn – Guitar & Tom Moore – Double Bass
