MARCH 7, 7:00 PM:

JOHN JORGENSON QUINTET

johnjorgenson

Finally…yes, a full two years after the record-setting blizzard forced the postponement, it’s the return of the John Jorgenson Quintet. The world’s best gypsy jazz? That’s a big statement, and one can never really say “the best” with something so subjective, but I’ll say this: You probably will never hear anyone play this music any better. Period.

Adults $25, kids high school and under, $5.00

 

APRIL 18, 7:00 PM. workshop at 3:00 PM

KATIE GLASSMAN AND SNAPSHOT

Katieglassman

Katie and the boys are are from out west, up high, in Colorado. High Plains country. Mining country. You’re expecting the best in Spaghetti Western music. But, you’re wrong. Not that they couldn’t do a killer version of an Ennio Morricone soundtrack, but as usual, modern ways of doing things make their influences far more reaching than the way things used to be. They do killer western swing. They do Texas blues. They do some beautifully lyrical soul/folk/who-knows-what-it-is. Katie’s our typical classical-turned-dark side contest fiddler, with award-winning chops ( 2-time National Champ) (oh, yeah, by the way, free workshop at 3 where Katie will be showing you how to be as cool as her in the contest world) and the band is equally at home tossing off brilliant vintage, historically correct or highly original lines. That sentence made no sense. I don’t care, as that’s what Katie and the band bring; a sense of adventure and thrills so great you just don’t care about making sense; you’re having too much fun. Adults $20, kids high school and under, $5.00

May 10, 7:00 PM:
