Kirtley Leigh Payne is no stranger the music scene of Cairns or indeed the world, a performer,educator par excellence ,Kirtley has played with them all and even rubbed shoulders with the famous maestro Stephane Grappelli . Kirtley's flair on the violin is a must see .
Blue Reed play gypsy swing in the style of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Sometimes fast and furious like the Captain Cook Highway on a Friday afternoon or slow and seductive like the Barron River on a Sunday afternoon. In the repertoire you will also find some classics as well as well known tunes given the gypsy swing touch.
