The John Jorgenson Quintet

When: Thu., April 6, 7:30 p.m. 2017

According to a 2013 article by No Depression, Grammy Award-winning guitarist John Jorgenson “has a rare kind of genius for an instrumentalist in that he’s equally comfortable and capable of playing Buck Owens, Beatles riffs or jazz leads.” From his time in the Desert Rose Band in the ’80s to his six-year stint touring with Elton John in the ’90s to honoring the gypsy-jazz legacy of Django Reinhardt with the John Jorgenson Quintet, the music man has earned a reputation for his skill on the six-string. Jorgenson performs several concerts around the state, allowing students to showcase creative works onstage as part of the Community Engagement Lab’s Vermont Creative Schools Initiative.

Price: $10-25.
