Tim Kliphuis Trio comes to the UK in 2 weeks: “Reunion” tour


Dear friends!


Finally, after a long wait, it’s possible for the Tim Kliphuis Trio to play concerts in the UK again.

So we’ve decided to go for it! We’re super excited: this will be the first leg of our “Reunion” tour. A special thankyou to the Queens Hall in Edinburgh for their generosity ...

From 28 October to 3 November, we’ll be in Scotland and the Northwest performing on the Black Isle, Inverurie, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Galloway and Kendal (January will see us head down south, very much a work-in-progress still).

Below are the dates: we warmly welcome you to come celebrate with us; please spread the word, invite friends - we know it’s short notice but are hoping to meet up with as many of you as possible again! *

Other news:

Our album “The Five Elements” received such positive attention that thanks to a sponsor, we were able to release a Limited Edition LP, for those vinyl lovers out there. We will have LPs and CDs for sale at our upcoming concerts.

Last Saturday, my new Triple Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano premiered at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw with my Dutch co-stars Ella van Poucke and Michiel Borstlap, accompanied by the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Lawrence Renes. A world premiere in the most prestigious concert series in Holland ... very grateful for the chance.

The radio broadcast is available for listening back, here!
The page is in Dutch; just hit the purple button. My piece starts around 34 minutes.
Seems to work best on a phone.

And some other recent successes: last month, the Trio and friends managed to do two Dutch concerts in Hoorn and Maastricht; I was honoured to receive the Swing Raven Award in Czestochowa, Poland and later perform at the Seattle Djangofest, keeping the spirit of Django and Grappelli alive in America 😊

See you soon!

Best wishes,
Tim, Nigel, Roy
