While working together in the popular Gypsy Jazz Quartet Djangologie, James Birkett and Emma Fisk discovered their shared love of Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang and in the form of this duo are bringing that musical passion to Northern jazz audiences.

The names of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli are familiar to many as pioneers of string-­based swing jazz. Less universally known are the names Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang, the Italian-­American duo who played hot violin and guitar jazz in the 1920s and 30s. Joe Venuti has been referred to as ‘the father of jazz violin’, ‘the first great violinist of jazz’, while his musical partner Eddie Lang is widely regarded as the first jazz guitar virtuoso.
