Award-winning violin legend Tim Kliphuis (Holland) presents a night of exciting gypsy jazz repertoire with America's young guitar lion and Django stylist, Sam Miltich (Minnesota). These two current-day Hot Club greats bring back the Parisian 1930s, alternating moments of dazzling interplay with melancholy and sheer exhilaration, as recorded on their new 'Duets' album.
Tim Kliphuis is a world-renowned improviser who has worked with The Rosenberg Trio, Fapy Lafertin, Bucky Pizzarelli, Les Paul, Richard Galliano and many others.
He tours Europe, the Americas, Russia and South-Africa, is an in-demand gypsy jazz educator and author of the best-selling book "Gypsy Jazz Violin".
