It might be a while before we can travel to Paris so, in the meantime, we’re delighted to share Jonny Kerry’s latest video, Under Paris Skies, which will transport you in your mind to the French capital.
Jonny Kerry’s Solo Accordion Project explores the French Café Accordion Musette, Tango & Jazz music of the 1920’s-50’s. His repertoire consists of well-known jazz and easy listening songs perfect for creating a relaxed atmosphere at any event.
Jonny began learning the accordion and singing at the age of 14 and has since performed at hundreds of events around Europe including concerts, weddings, on the BBC period drama ‘The Peaky Blinders’, for the Prince of Monaco and for Warner records.
Jonny has become one of the most in-demand accordion players in the UK, and plays many different styles of music including Gypsy Jazz, French Musette, Bossa Nova, Tango, Italian Folk, and Classical music. He has studied with some of the worlds top Jazz accordionists including Frank Petrilli (USA) and Richard Galliano (France).
The accordion is one of a few instruments that can accompany itself while allowing the performer to walk about while playing. It perfectly suits wedding receptions, corporate events, restaurants & background music at any event. Jonny has performed solo accordion for companies such as Renault, John Lewis, Virgin Media, Café Rouge, The Natural History Museum, St Pancras Hotel and on the BBC series the Peaky Blinders.
We might be in lockdown for the moment, but many of our artists are able to offer virtual performances.
We’re very much looking forward to celebrating with lots of live music, and being able to travel when we’re able to.
