Midday Concert @ 1:00pm with Mes Amis – a Gypsy Jazz Quartet
Dec 9, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
ELLSWORTH – Mes Amis, a gypsy jazz quartet, will play a Midday Concert at 1:00pm on December 9 at the Moore Community Center in Ellsworth, Maine. The concert is sponsored by Ellsworth Community Music Institute (ECMI) with help from the City of Ellsworth and the Onion Foundation.
Mes Amis is led by guitarist, vocalist, and composer Steve Lynnworth. Shane Ellis, a master on woodwinds and an instructor at the Ellsworth Community Music Institute, regularly joins Steve and the rest of the ensemble for concert performances throughout the State of Maine. The repertoire of Mes Amis includes an infectious mix of traditional gypsy, Latin, and American jazz standards, along with a number of original compositions. The insistent rhythms, bouncing bass lines and sweetly intricate melodies are easy on the ears for those less familiar with jazz, yet can stand the scrutiny of a “jazz aficionado.”
The concert on December 9th will feature Shane Ellis on woodwinds, Steve Lynnworth on guitar and vocals, Harry Richter on guitar and Duane Edwards on bass.
For more information, please call 207-664-9258 or email: email@example.com Admission is free to the public.
