Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
Oliver Waitze is revered for his exquisite taste, tone, and ability to play genres ranging from bluegrass to jazz to hot swing, latin and beyond. In addition to his love of bluegrass, Oliver developed an interest in swing and jazz through his exposure to the music of Django Reinhardt, David Grisman and Tony Rice!
Oliver also explored the haunting latin sounds of Brazilian choro music.
His warm, resonant tone, melodic sophistication and clean, strong execution have developed through the years from these many musical sources.

Hi Olli, schön, Dich hier zu treffen. Ich habe mir zu Weihnachten Dein Flatpicking-Lehrbuch besorgt und übe nun sehr fleissig die Lessons. Das Buch ist klasse und hilft sehr. Habe gesehen, dass wir gar nicht weit voneinander entfernt wohnen. Ich melde mich bei Gelegenheit einmal bei Dir. Kommst Du im Mai zum EWOB-Festival nach Holland? Liebe Grüsse - Volker
