Have your say

If you enjoy heart pumping atmospheric music then don’t miss an evening of gypsy swing from the very exciting Gypsy Fire at Peterborough Jazz Club, The Great Northern Hotel in Peterborough on Sunday

This genre of jazz music was created by the genius Django Rheinhardt and became the Hot Club Era in Paris in the 1930s and is currently experiencing a great resurgence throughout Europe, with its rhythm, energy and melodies being rediscovered by musicians and the public alike.

Gypsy Fire are without doubt one of the very best bands currently playing this genre and receive rave reviews wherever they play.

The band was formed by Ben Holder, who is one of the most gifted and exciting young jazz violinists in the 
UK.

Taught classically from the age of six, he studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire and at college he embarked on a detailed analysis of these musicians techniques and the way in which they merged this most classical of instruments into the jazz style of Gypsy Swing.

Music starts at 7.30pm Tickets £13 at the door
