Åarhus Gallery in Belfast is pleased to be hosting Gypsy Caravan’s CD Release Party at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 23, rescheduled from last Saturday due to the foul weather. This local band last played at the gallery to a delighted audience during the 2012 Free Range Music Festival. The band, featuring David Clarke on lead guitar, Wayne Delano on saxes, Dan Clarke on rhythm guitar and Max MacFarland on acoustic bass performs in the gypsy jazz manouche style, building upon the traditions of Django Reinhardt’s music while getting inspiration from modern players such as Bireli Lagrene, John Jorgenson, Robin Nolan and Frank Vignola.
Hot, gypsy jazz…what better way to warm up a cold February night? A $7 suggested donation at the door includes cider, tea and snacks. Their new CD “Douze Chansons” featuring 12 original songs will be available for purchase.
Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St., Belfast, operating under winter hours February through the end of May, is open Thursday-Sunday 11am-5:30pm. For more information please contact www.aarhusgallery.com or 338-0001.
