Angelo Debarre Quartet


Angelo Debarre (guitar) Andy Aitchison (violin) Dave Kelbie (guitar) Andy Crowdy (bass)

The foremost Gypsy guitarist in the world and a legend amongst European Gypsies, Debarre has astonished British audiences with his virtuosity for the last seven years. He's one of the most versatile guitarists of our time and is the recognised master of the style originated by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli at the Hot Club de Paris in the 1930s. Formed in 2000, the Angelo Debarre Quartet has been stunning audiences Europe wide with their cutting edge approach to the later period of the Reinhardt repertoire.

"Debarre is something else…"
John L. Walters, The Guardian

In the printed programme, Christin Garrick was included as the violinist. He has now been replaced by Andy Aitchison. Picture and CV of Andy below:
