"Paulus Schäfer: Regarded as Gypsy Jazz royalty, Paulas is known globally as one of the most gifted guitarists of his generation. The Dutch Sinti Gypsy is one of a small handful of contemporary world class musicians bringing the musical style first played by his forefather, the great Django Reinhardt to the international jazz stage.

Simply put, Paulus is a true master, expect to be blown away by his staggering virtuosity and beautifully lyrical guitar playing, a must for lovers of real music.
Paulus' Trio features Dutch double bass legend Arnoud Van Den Berg as well as UK guitar virtuoso Chris Quinn on Rhythm Guitar, this is one of the tightest rhythm sections in the business.
The Paulus Schafer Trio, featuring Chris and Arnoud have just finished recording a studio album due for release in June 2018, "O drôm foon e guitaré - The way of the guitar" which will be available at concerts on the tour.
