Internationally renowned guitarist Remi Harris will be appearing at Great Witley Village Hall on Saturday 7th December as part of his 2019 tour.
With a variety of electric and acoustic guitars and a ukulele, Remi will be performing with double bassist Tom Moore. He has travelled to more than 40 theatres and music venues in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland already this year, including a festival in the South of France.
Remi’s music has reached new audiences and he continues to gain recognition for his virtuoso talent, with the recent honour of his 1st signature model from Fylde guitars. Roger Bucknall, a well respected guitar luthier in the Lake District has handmade a ‘Remi Harris’ model guitar, inspiring budding guitarists to recreate the unique Remi Harris sound. This further cements Remi’s reputation as a leading guitarist in his field.
In his career to date, Remi has performed at the BBC Proms, Buckingham Palace, on the Chris Evans breakfast show with Jamie Cullum, Montreal Jazz Festival, on BBC 4 Television and live on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 3.
Jamie Cullum, International Star, said, “Remi Harris is an incredible guitarist, I’m absolutely blown away by his talent.”
Remi, 31, who was born in Hereford, says “I’ve really enjoyed the tour so far. It’s great to be playing in our favourite venues and visiting new places, we’re so grateful for the audiences who come out and see us year on year”.
From the day Remi was born his mother of French origin chose the name Remi, inspired by the musical scale DO-RE-MI. His first album is called ‘Ninick’ in memory of his mother. Predominantly self taught with the help of his Dad’s guitar magazines and records, Remi 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. 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 an increasing following on YouTube and social media around the world and a growing reputation for blending all of his influences into his own individual style of playing.
Concert goers will be treated to a spectacular night of virtuoso guitar playing – with influences from Jazz, Blues, Rock’n’Roll, Funk and World Music. Musically the show is a reflection of Remi’s artistic influences – with 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.
Please note that this is an all-ticket event.
