11 May and 7th June – This year, thanks to Gillian and Mark and their amazing guitar festival I was introduced to Django Reinhardt’s intoxicating French gypsy jazz guitar sound – the Remi Harris Quartet, who played at a tiny jazz club in Boston Spa where the audience brought along their sandwiches, and Djangologie, who performed on the first night of the Bishopthorpe Little Guitar Festival (2013 slogan: ‘not so little any more’. That hot, giddy sound gets into your bones.

Marks: 8/10 – need to hear more.
