(concert / dance)
at Trutch St. in Kitsilano
Van Django is an acoustic string ensemble whose music is well-rooted in the gypsy jazz of 1930's Paris France, but beyond that it's all flights of dazzling fancy, driving rhythms and boundless creativity. The quartet was formed in 1998 and is made up of four of Canada's most talented and eclectic musicians- violinist Cameron Wilson, guitarist Budge Schachte, guitarist/cellist Finn Manniche and bassist Laurence Mollerup. This will be a Swing Dance with an expanded lineup of the band!
