A dynamic blend of haunting melodies, pulsating rhythms and stirring improvisations – breaking stylistic barriers while maintaining Scottish roots. Daring and accessible, their music will have you on the edge of your seat.

Ben Creighton Griffiths and Adrien Chevalier - Jazz and Swing!
Come and re-live the decadent Parisian jazz scene of the 1930s with Ben Creighton Griffiths and Adrien Chevalier of The Transatlantic Hot Club. Their performance will feature well-loved jazz standards of the swing era, classics of the French Gypsy Jazz repertoire inspired by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli amongst others, and jazz takes on traditional tunes from the Romany and Balkan traditions. They are delighted to perform as a duo edition for the Harp Festival this year.
