Idle Manouche

Idle Manouche are an acoustic gypsy jazz outfit who originally got together at the Huddersfield Jazz Guitar Society. They play Hot Club and music taken from the Django Reinhardt songbook and have performed across the Yorkshire area.

Featuring three guitars and violin, Idle Manouche have a varied and interesting set which is always musical and fun. They take their name from the village of Idle where they often rehearse and not because they are lazy.
