Ameranouche to perform gypsy flamenco swing in Brandon

Saturday, March 30, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON— Burlington-based and award-winning trio Ameranouche will perform live at Brandon Music, Saturday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m., playing a passionate style of music they call gypsy flamenco swing.

The trio’s name is derived from two words: American and Manouche, the gypsy tribe of Django Reinhardt. The rip-roaring ensemble is a super force of hot acoustic gypsy inspired music mixing flamenco, bebop and jazz swing influences. Played on traditional French jazz guitars, the music is rhythmic, vigorous and elegant. Whether they are playing a musette waltz from 1930 or an Andalusian inspired original tune, Ameranouche’s style is a fresh and highly enjoyable new sound for the 21st century.

The group features three highly accomplished musicians, Richard “Shepp” Sheppard on guitar, Michael K. Harrist on bass and Julian Loida, percussionist.

Concert tickets are $20. A pre-concert dinner is available for $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB.

Call 802-247-4295 or email for reservations or for more information. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon.
