Blue Drag Music returns with the seventh concert of our Django’s Legacy series aimed at celebrating the music of legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt, bringing together two legends of the Gypsy Jazz world Holland’s Paulus Schäfer and Liverpool’s own Gary Potter.
Paulus Schäfer (born 1978) is today considered one of the most talented Gypsy Jazz guitarists from The Netherlands. Born into a Dutch Sinti (Gypsy) community he learned to play the guitar at a very early age. Besides listening to fellow Sinti and records of his idol Django Reinhardt, it was Wasso Grünholz – a legend within the Sinti community – from whom he learned the most.
Gary Potters's admirers have included many fellow guitarists, including Chet Atkins and George Harrison. During the 90s, Gary was best known for his gypsy jazz playing and in 1994 came second in the guitar section of the British Jazz Awards. He also appeared in the Channel 4 TV documentary Django Legacy alongside Bireli Lagrene, Stochelo Rosenberg and Django’s own son Babik Reinhardt which brought so much attention to this music we love.
