ONE the most internationally renowned gypsy jazz acts of the last 20 years will be performing for North Wales Jazz later this month.

On Tuesday, May 21, Amsterdam-based guitarist Robin Nolan, who has been lauded by greats including the late George Harrison, Willie Nelson, and Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman, takes his trio to the Royal British Legion, in Llay.

Some of Robin Nolan's career highlights include receiving a standing ovation at New York’s famous Lincoln Center, being invited to open the Django Reinhardt 50th anniversary festival in Samois-sur-Seine, and appearing on the soundtrack of the MGM film “Autumn in New York” starring Richard Gere and Winona Ryder.

Born in Vietnam in 1968 to musical parents, Robin was instantly immersed into the life of a working, travelling musician.

In Hong Kong at the age of six he picked up the guitar and immediately showed a natural affinity for the instrument.

This proved to be the beginning of a musical journey which has taken Robin through blues, rock and jazz before arriving at his love and passion - the music of Django Reinhardt.

Completing the trio will be Shropshire-based Chris Quinn (guitar) and Dutch double bass sensation Arnoud van den Berg.

The concert commences at 8pm and tickets are £8, with concessions at £7.

Admission for Students' Union members and school children is £3.
