A violinist last night asÂ the John Jorgenson Quintet performed with the U32 High School string ensemble at the Barre, VT, Opera House. You think you don’t know Jorgenson, the virtuoso guitarist who leads the group, but you have probably heard him playing with musicians as diverse as Pavarotti, Earl Scruggs and Bonnie Raitt, among many others. The program was part of the Community Engagement Lab’s Creative Schools Initiative. Below, Jorgenson, more of the ensemble and Jorgenson’s accordinonist/keyboardist Rory Hoffman. Thanks to the guy who ran those stage lights.
Quite a leap from Finland, I know, but I have more from Lahti and Lapland I will catch up with next.
