Remi Harris is an exciting guitarist from the UK who’s unique style draws inspiration from Gypsy Swing, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Electronic and World Music.
He has toured worldwide as well as performing at Buckingham Palace, Montreal Jazz Festival, BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall with Jamie Cullum, on BBC4 Television and live on BBC Radio2 and BBC Radio3.
In his live shows, Remi plays an eclectic mix of original compositions, improvisations, jazz standards and new arrangements of music from Django Reinhardt, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, Peter Green and many more. He plays a variety of acoustic and electric guitars and the shows are interspersed with his commentary about the history of the music and instruments he’s playing.
Remi was named after the 2nd and 3rd notes of the major scale, Do “Re Mi” Fa So La Ti Do.
Primarily self taught he started playing at the age of 7, initially inspired by rock and blues guitarists of the 60s and 70s such as Jimi Hendrix, Peter Green and Jimmy Page.
He played his first concert aged 11 and 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 been growing a reputation for blending all of his influences into his own individual style of playing.
Remi will be accompanied by Tom Moore on Double Bass.
