Tchavolo Schmitt Rarely seen in uk, cousin of dorado schmitt and star of the Tony Gatlif movie "Swing"

A golden opportunity to see Tchavolo Schmitt up close on an intimate stage.

monday/tuesday 30/31 july ?20

At 6 Tchavolo was introduced to the guitar by his mother; his father played violin.  He developed his virtuosity in the Manouche style and his renown rapidly exceeded the limits of Alsace, his home. He is known around the globe for his extraordinary talent as a player teacher, band leader and composer.  In 1979, he became a professional musician, and returned to his Alsatian roots, and joined the band "Hot Club da Sinti".  Martin Limbergers musical pedigree is well known in the Gypsy music world - they are joined by rock steady bass player Andy Crowdy a regular at Le QuecumBar seen here with many visiting Gypsy stars.  This will be another first for Le QuecumBar.

Open at 6, food available until 10 all tables allocated on arrival, diners get preferential seating. Tickets from ?22 door.
