Django in June

2006

Please join us June 16 - 18, 2006 in
beautiful Northampton, MA, for our third annual celebration of Gypsy
Jazz in the tradition of Django Reinhardt. In a nutshell, the weekend
consists of:

  • Two great concerts: On Friday, June 16th we have a double bill
    featuring Sweden's Andreas Oberg (with Djangobook's
    Michael Horowitz) and The Stephane Wrembel
    Trio
    . Then on Saturday night, gypsy guitarist Lollo
    Meier
    (in his first visit to the US) and violin wizard Tim
    Kliphuis
    join us from Holland. (Just want tickets?)
  • Clinics for guitarists, violinists, mandolin and bass players by
    all our performers and other expert teachers.
  • Loads of time and space for djamming of both the
    free-form and facilitated variety.
  • Convenient, affordable housing on the Smith College Campus.
  • Vendors with the latest in gear, learning materials and
    recordings.

Please roam around the website to find out what we have in store. If
you are a musician and you are relatively new to this tradition, don't
skip the "Get Ready
Musically
" page. And don't hesitate to contact me directly
if you still have questions.

That's it... Allons-y mes amis!

    Thanks for posting an announcement about Django in June, Michael. We're all looking forward to seeing you in just a few weeks. I just realized, however, that nowhere in the text you quoted does it mention where we are. Well, folks, Django in June is in quaint Northampton, MA. Hope some of you can join us.

    Trains can get you to either Amherst (about 15 minutes away) or Springfield (about 20), and you can get buses in from either place. If you take the bus straight in from NY it'll land you about a 5 minute walk from the spot where the fest is taking place. See you there!

    Best,
    Jack.

    Hi Everyone...I'm flying out to Boston tomorrow for the Django in June fest. I arrive at Logan at 7pm. Can anyone give me a ride to Northampton? Let me know...I'm desperate!

    Thanks,

    'm

    Sorry, Michael! Andrew asked the other day, but I'm absolutely chained to the theater until the festival begins (the price I paid to make sure I didn't have to be there all weekend). I did just post to the various Yahoo groups about it-they seem to have more NE members-so hopefully you'll hear from someone there...the chance to pick your brain during the trip will be too hard for people to resist.

    Best,
    Jack.

    Thanks Jack....I was able to find a reasonable car rental so I've got the transport covered. But I'm looking for crash space for Thursday night. Know of any?

    I do indeed, if my couch is okay...I'll be at work by the time you get in, but give a call if you'd like; you'd at least have the place to yourself till I got home. The theater number is 413.586.5828. See you soon!
