Dutch jazz violinist Tim Kliphuis received the Scottish Jazz Federation’s ‘international musician’ prize during a concert in Rothesay on Friday.
He was presented with the prize by Tim Saul, the chairman of the Isle of Bute Jazz Festival, who was part of the judging panel at this year’s Scottish Jazz Awards, organised jointly by the Federation and Audacious Music.
The award was presented during a concert by the Tim Kliphuis Trio - comprising Tim, Roy Percy on double bass and Nigel Clark on guitar - at Rothesay Joint Campus as part of the Bute Arts Society’s winter series.
Kliphuis was unable to attend the Scottish Jazz Awards ceremony, held in Edinburgh on October 28, due to overseas performing commitments.
