Heritage Series Concert: John Jorgenson Trio
Friday, February 22nd 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
at Happy Days Lodge
Led by Grammy-winning guitarist John Jorgenson, the John Jorgenson Trio creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and the casual music fan. Each member of the group is a virtuoso, yet the music is accessible, melodic, and appealing. The group's style has been called "gypsy jazz" after the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris, but Jorgenson's compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, classical, rock, and Greek music. First coming to national attention as co-founder of The Desert Rose Band, Jorgenson went on to form The Hellecasters and toured with Elton John for six years.
