Dutchman Tim Kliphuis ranks among the world's finest jazz violinists. He takes Stéphane Grappelli's legacy into the 21st Century by infusing Gypsy Swing with Folk and Classical music.

"Stephane Grappelli's style is alive and well in the hands of Tim Kliphuis" - Nigel Kennedy

Think Stephane Grappelli, Frankie Gavin, Yehudi Menuhin, Slam Stewart, Django Reinhardt and Oscar Peterson all thrown together and you get an idea of Tim’s musical style. It's Jazz, Folk and Classical tunes all thrown together in one "swingy, zingy mix" (Glasgow Herald) that is fresh and new but appeals to everyone.

"Ear-caressing" - Sir John Dankworth

After touring and recording with gypsy jazz guitarists Fapy Lafertin, Angelo Debarre and Stochelo Rosenberg, Tim moved on to create his own unique style which got him concerts all over the world in venues ranging from jazz clubs and concert halls to Swing and Classical festivals. He worked with Les Paul, Frankie Gavin, Martin Taylor, Bucky Pizzarelli and Jay Ungar.

"This was a charming, uplifting performance from a future great. Kliphuis’s music will take you back to a simpler point in time. He has the world at his feet ... check him out." - Scotsman

As a continental swing jazz educator, Kliphuis hosts Jazz Violin Workshops around the globe and was featured in several editions of Fiddler Magazine. His Tuition Book about Grappelli's style is scheduled to appear with Mel Bay Publications in 2008 and a first DVD is in the making.

“Kliphuis plays with an astonishingly fluid versatility, incorporating funky slurs, whooping hoedown flourishes" Time Out
