We start the season by delving into the world of Django Reinhardt with the expert help of Trio Manouche.
World-famous for our Library, every concert will also respond to themes suggested by our collections and will feature pop-up displays of original historical materials. You can expect anything from holiday getaways of the past to the lives of 1930s East End anti-fascists to be covered.
The concerts run for no more than 40 minutes, so you can bring your sandwiches along to enjoy while you listen to world-class performers - then be back at your desk before your lunch hour is up.
Meet the Artists
Trio Manouche are probably the UK’s best-loved gypsy swing ensemble, playing music it’s impossible not to love with infectious energy, virtuosity and joy. The band brings together the core repertoire of legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt with the band’s own foot-tapping arrangements of trad swing greats such as Nat King Cole, and bandleader Simon Harris’s highly acclaimed original material.
