dave kelbie
"Kelbie’s rhythm guitar work is crisp and intensely rhythmic, always keeping perfect time whatever the tempo. It’s an underrated craft requiring considerable musical skill and a high degree of stamina. Kelbie is held in awe by guitarists in the numerous other Django inspired groups dotted around the country, he’s widely regarded as the country’s premier rhythm guitarist and with his organisational skills has done more than most to keep Reinhardt’s music alive in the UK."
