Club Manouche with Linn Lorkin

Club Manouche with Linn Lorkin

 A Django Reinhardt inspired gypsy swing jazz quartet –

James Sneyd (the Grappelli of the South Pacific) - violin
Hershal Herscher - piano/squeeze-box
Sunderland’s finest, Steve Sherry - rhythm guitar
Aaron Coddel - upright bass.
Vocals - Linn Lorkin

Although vocalists were only rarely featured with the "Quintette du Hot Club de France", the legendary group founded by Django Reinhard ( a genuine Romany gypsy) and Stéphane Grappelli in 1930's Paris, Linn Lorkin adds an authentic touch, singing as she does fluently in French.  There will even be some Piaf numbers re-arranged into the gypsy swing style.
