The French guitarist Jean Guyomarc’h has been a regular visitor to Wales over the course of the last two years or so, becoming something of an audience favourite in the process.
In 2015 the Brittany born musician toured Wales with the group Major Swing featuring rhythm guitarist and vocalist Phillippe Cann and violinist and vocalist Yurie Hu. The tour culminated with a well received performance at Brecon Jazz Festival where the trio were joined by guest performers Remi Harris (guitar) and Ashley John Long (double bass), two highly accomplished local musicians with strong followings in the Welsh Borders and beyond. My review of that performance can be read here;
In October 2016 Guyomarc’h returned to the UK for another short tour, something that now seems to be becoming something of an annual event.
