Gypsy Jazz

SO. BERWICK, ME - The award winning Gypsy jazz, flamenco and swing of Ameranouche (pronounced uh-MARE-uh-noosh) will kick off an eclectic new concert series on Sat., September 28, at 7:00 p.m., at the First Parish Federated Church, 150 Main St in South Berwick, ME.

Made up of guitarists Richard “Shepp” Sheppard and Jack Soref, and bassist Michael Harrist, the Seacoast-based trio is promoting the release of their fourth CD, “Hot!”. Their first three critically acclaimed recordings, along with their intense and lively onstage performances, have earned them two Best of New Hampshire Awards. They also have the distinction of being the first Gypsy jazz ensemble to appear at the prestigious Newport Jazz Festival, where they received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Aside from their own first-rate compositions, Ameranouche performs such classics as Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five,” the Argentine standard “La Foile,” and “Swing 48” by Belgian-born, Gypsy jazz guitar master Django Reinhardt, to name a few. Their sound is hot acoustic jazz, mixed with soul, flamenco, and bebop influences, played on traditional French jazz guitars.

The series will continue on Sat., October 19, with New Orleans jazz of the Soggy Po’ Boys. Other acts for future shows include a gospelized Christmas show by the RMS Five in December and a rare acoustic performance by the Americana band Wooden Eye in January.

Reservations: $10.00 in advance or $12.00 at the door. For advance reservations, call 207.450.8746 or by visiting or calling the church office (207.384.4091) between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
