Award winning Dutch violinist, Tim is a master of the violin and a wizard of sound who embraces classical, gypsy jazz and traditional folk. St Mary's Church at 7.30.
Tim Kliphuis played at the 2010 Winchfield Festival to rave reviews, and we have been looking forward to welcoming him back ever since.
Tim is a Dutch violinist who has created a brand new style that embraces classical, gypsy, jazz and folk. Hailed as a ‘current-day improvising Paganini’, his inclusive and innovative approach to music has united audiences and is influencing a new generation of string players.
An invitation to the Richard Strauss Festival in Germany started the Tim Kliphuis Trio (Nigel Clark, guitar and Roy Percy, double bass) whose mission is a ‘total music’ without stylistic barriers. They performed at the Amsterdam Canal Concert, curated the world fiddle night at Celtic Connections Glasgow, celebrated Stéphane Grappelli at the Django Reinhardt Festival in Samois-sur-Seine and shared the stage with Les Paul, Richard Galliano, Frankie Gavin, Martin Hayes and Daniel Hope. The Trio collaborated with the Netherlands and Tallinn Chamber Orchestras, The Hague and Cape Town Philharmonic and Sinfonietta Amsterdam and toured America, South Africa and Russia.
