Internationally renowned ace guitarist Remi Harris brings his dazzling talents to the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar on Wednesday, May 30, at 8pm.
Harris' unique style draws inspiration from gypsy swing, jazz, blues, rock, funk, electronic, and world music. He has toured worldwide, including performing at Montreal Jazz Festival, BBC Proms, on BBC 4 Television, and live on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3.
He enthuses: “I love being able to take my music to new places and I'm really looking forward to visiting Ireland for the first time. We’re hoping for a great show in Castlebar.”
Remi started playing at the age of seven, initially inspired by rock and blues guitarists of the sixties and seventies such as Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green, and Jimmy Page. In his late teens he developed an interest in jazz music, in particular artists such as Django Reinhardt, Wes Montgomery, and Stan Getz.
Since then he has earned a growing reputation for blending all of his influences into his own individual style of playing. For this highly anticipated concert, expect a repertoire ranging from Django Reinhardt to Jimi Hendrix and all things in between, including The Beatles, Peter Green, and new compositions from his anticipated third album. And an evening of virtuoso guitar playing.
