Paul Paterson is an Edinburgh based guitarist who is widely recognised as one of Scotland's leading gypsy jazz players.  Paul has played professionally since the age of 18 and specialises in the authentic Django Reinhardt sound of the 1930s. He is accompanied by his spiritual and musical partner, Charlotte Paterson on double bass. The pair live out their adventures; dressing in vintage fashion, touring the world, and sharing the music of early jazz pioneers; Eddie Lang, Oscar Alemán, Charlie Christian, and Django Reinhardt. They are lucky enough to attract the very best musicians to join them on their musical journeys.

Graham Pointer is an outstanding guitarist from London via Glasgow. Graham's musical CV reads like a who's-who of top professional musicians - from Jack Dee's TV band to touring the world with top pop and reggae names, Graham has done it all.

Their debut album "swing parisien" sold out the first pressing within two weeks. The album is now available on all digital platforms for download and streaming.
