Summer Concert Series: Blue Fuse
Tuesday, August 13, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
CONCERT WILL BE IN THE READING ROOM (moved from the Amphitheatre due to inclement weather).
Blue Fuse plays contemporary and classic Gypsy Swing. Based in Portland, Maine, Blue Fuse is steeped in
Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club Jazz of Paris in the 30s and 40s. The sounds are familiar and
accessible; you have heard the tunes before but did not know that it was called Gypsy Jazz.
Blue Fuse plays the classics of the genre and contemporary adaptations adding in Latin beats and
surprises. Accordion, guitars, bass, vocals and lively banter. They can be found in coffee houses,
festivals, seedy jazz dives, distilleries and private cocktail parties on ocean verandas all around New
