The idea that originally inspired Tim Miller and Jon Fry to form the duo was to explore the repertoire for two acoustic guitars and to include music from multiple genres such as Jazz, Classical, Flamenco, Americano, Latin-American and Manouche. Both musicians strongly embrace Gypsy Jazz and the Django style of music to the point that Jons guitar is based on the Macaferri/Selmer design originally made famous by guitarist Django Reinhardt in the 1930s.
Jon Fry - Acoustic Guitar
Jon started playing the piano at the age of eight. In his early teens he got his first guitar. Largely self-taught, it was not until later in life that he studied music formally at Truro College (UK), as a student on the Bachelor of Music (Jazz) programme.
About 15 years ago, he was introduced to the legacy of wonderful guitar players inspired by 'Django Reinhardt'. This, combined with an interest in all things 'jazz and improvisation', has led him to his current musical juncture.
When he's not performing with 'Gadjo Guitares' he can be heard playing with gipsy jazz quartet 'Manouche'.
Tim Miller - Acoustic Guitar
Tim (24) got his first guitar when he was 15. Early influences were his sister's violin playing and 70's 'progressive rock' bands. He was taught by guitar wizard 'Simon Spring' at Callington Music College (UK) and has recently completed the Bachelor of Arts (Jazz/ World music) programme at Truro College (UK).
Tim's music is varied and eclectic. His college band 'La Gitane Branche' reflected an interest in European Gypsy music and culture.
When he's not performing with 'Gadjo Guitares', Tim can be heard playing with neo-progressive rock band 'Progatron'.
