Sami Arefin and Zach Serleth back him up for a night of jazz manouche, swing, and HUNGARIAN folk music. YEET!
Doors at 7:30, music starts at 8pm.
“…He is a player to watch and listen to if you want to know where the genre is headed….”- Nick Lehr (Djangofest Northwest)
“The Jimmy Grant Ensemble performs primarily in the style of Django Reinhardt, infusing swing era pieces, original work, and traditional gypsy tunes with the jazz guitar pioneer’s crunchy rhythms and hot harmonies. Jimmy Grant was recently a finalist in the John Lennon songwriting competition for his original song “Insomnia,” and also had an interview with Guitar World for his “5 in 5″ project, in which he wrote five different songs in five days. His style synthesizes a rich blend of Russian folk, bluegrass, celtic and classical music while remaining true to Django’s innovative guitar technique. The Jimmy Grant Ensemble will bring together two guitars, bass, and violin in an intimate yet energy-charged performance.”Learn More
