A weekend of world-class concerts in the heart of Shrewsbury
Without doubt the most celebrated gypsy jazz guitarist since Django Reinhardt and arguably the finest jazz guitarist in Europe right now.
The Dutch Sinti Gypsy Stochelo Rosenberg has performed at the world’s major jazz festivals such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz, the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois, Jazz In Marciac, Jazz à Vienna and in the world’s most famous venues including Carnegie Hall in New York and the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles.
He has released 26 albums to date and amongst his many career highlights he counts performing and recording extensively with the great Stéphane Grappeli who commented on Stochelo’s playing as ‘absolutely the best…’.
Another high was his recent commission to provide the soundtrack for the French blockbuster movie Django, a film about the legendary guitarist’s life and music.
