It's in his blood...
If you’re a guitarist and your name is Reinhardt you’ve probably got some talented blood running in your veins.
The Lismore Jazz Club is bringing Lulo Reinhardt to Lismore City Hall on Saturday, March 20, from 8pm.
Lulo is the grand nephew of the great Django Reinhardt. He was taught guitar by his father at the age of five and by 12 he was playing with the Mike Reinhardt Sextet, a group entirely dedicated to the gypsy swing of Django Reinhardt.
Since then Lulo has earned a worldwide reputation and has come into his own as a concert guitarist.
His musical curiosity has taken him to southern Spain in search of flamenco roots, and to South America exploring Latin jazz. Lulo’s music reveals his enthusiasm for virtuosity and spontaneity, all set in a sort of melancholy.
Anyway, the man can play. Really play.
Accompanying Lulo for this concert is Doug Martin on guitar, Daniel Weltlinger on violin, Sean Mackenzie on keys and percussion, Harald Becher on bass, Peter Kenard on percussion and Fabian Hevia on drums.
Tickets are $42 for cabaret style seating (bring your own nibblies) or $32 for tiered seating. To buy tickets visit www.norpa.org.au or the box office in Lismore City Hall.
