Benefit concert for Music Education
Legendary guitarist and Grammy Award-winning John Jorgenson is known for his blistering guitar and mandolin licks and mastery of a broad musical palette. He has earned a reputation as a world-class musician for his collaborations with Earl Scruggs, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bob Dylan, and many others. He is best described as “21st Century World Music”. With the John Jorgenson Quintet, he creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and casual music fan. 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. Jorgenson's compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical Rock, and Greek music. "21st Century WorldMusic" is perhaps a more apt description.
