Violin Maestro and maverick, Nigel Kennedy announces a special concert inspired by the music of Jimi Hendrix.
Kennedy’s experiences in music have ranged from straight classical interpretations to collaborations with Stefan Grappelli, Kate Bush, Robert Plant and Paul McCartney. However from early on in his career there has been one composer to whom he keeps on returning, namely Jimi Hendrix. Kennedy explains: “What attracts me to Jimi Hendrix’s music is the amazingly open mind that he had. This was reflected in many ways; he was always gracious and never insulting to anybody and this showed through the music.

“There were any number of influences that he could hear through the compositions; these ranged from rock, blues and Celtic through to trance and experimental styles. Maybe that’s why I find it so natural exploring his music, having been involved in so many similar styles myself”.

This concert will see the virtuoso work with a brand new international lineup consisting of guitarist Doug Boyle (who took Jimmy Page’s place working with Robert Plant regularly), Julian Buschberger (an 18 year old guitar prodigy), Orphy Robinson (the unique vibraphonist who was a founding member of The Jazz Warriors), Tomasz Kupiec and Adam Czerwinski (one of the leading European rhythm sections who emanate from the Jarek Śmietana band).
