THE RUNNING HORSE PRESENTS
MANIERE DES BOHEMIENS - 10:45 - 11:20
Manière des Bohémiens play energetic and improvised Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli influenced Gypsy Jazz and Eastern European swing. They are the most debauched, ecstatic and downright amazing
live band you will have seen for a long while.
Gypsy jazz played with the jaunty abandon of a misspent youth and a broken heart arranged for 5 young virtuoso musicians who travel around playing the violin, guitar, sax and double bass whilst dipping in and out of Parisian alleyways and absorbing pieces of the colourful lives they meet along the way. They have been entertaining the folks of Nottingham and far beyond for many years with their infectious blend of improvised, manouche jazz and rough-edged, virtuosic eastern-european gypsy-folk music.
Manière des Bohémiens' current line-up of Rob Rosa - Violin, Roger Rosa & Rob Coates - Guitars, Peter Beardsworth – Sax, Matt Marks - Accordion and Mark Houlgate/Catherine Jones - Bass have now collectively played over 250 shows which has created a tight, energetic sound which has made people get up on their feet up and down the land. This year was another huge step forwards for the band with a clutch of festival appearances including Southwell Folk, Port Eliot Literary Festival, Hay-onWye Festival, City of London Festival, Galtres Festival, Camp Bestival, the Tatton Flower Show and ending with 3 shows at Bestival on the Isle of Wight. They’ve also appeared at Summer Sundae, Matt & Phreds, Kendal Calling, Limetree, Headstock, Larmer Tree, Towesey Folk and Fire in the Mountain to name a few. They are regularly the headline act at their hometown Nottingham gigs and have also had support slots for Jools Holland, Polar Bear and Quantic. They've been played on 6 music several times and have been included on Tom Robinson's 'best of Introducing' podcast.
