Tim Ellis is a guitarist originally from Leicester via Cornwall who brings a very personal connection to performing in the distinctive style of gypsy jazz guitar legend Django Reinhardt. Based now in London, but performing throughout the UK, Ellis has strong musical influences from both the Alsatian Manouche and Dutch Sinto styles. Ellis is a thriving young performer playing at venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, The Groucho Club, Cahoots and the Chelsea Arts Club. Ellis studied guitar with Gypsy Jazz stars Lollo Meier and Aurelien Bouly and is one of Le Q’s favourites, bringing together respected musicians from the gypsy jazz scene to create the Tim Ellis: Jazz Manouche Collective. Connecting a variety of esteemed instrumentalists for each Jazz Manouche Collective gig at Le Q, Ellis creates an atmosphere for music making at its best; with creative synergy, feeling and fun.
