VALLECITO — The John Jorgenson Quintet performs Saturday, Aug. 23, at Twisted Oak Winery in Vallecito starting at 7:30 p.m.

Advance tickets are $25 and can be purchased online at Concertgoers will be admitted starting at 6:30 p.m. The show starts at 7:45 p.m.  Admission is $10 for children under 12. All proceeds from children’s ticket sales will be donated to support music education in Calaveras County.

Jorgenson, known for his blistering guitar licks and mastery of a broad musical palette, has earned a reputation as a world-class musician and guitarist who has collaborated with the likes of Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti, Bonnie Raitt and Bob Dylan. In addition to acoustic and electric guitars, he is also regularly featured on the saxophone, clarinet, bouzouki, pedal steel, mandolin, vocals and has garnered recognition for contributing to numerous platinum-selling and Grammy-winning albums.

Currently touring as the John Jorgenson Quintet, Jorgenson creates a unique musical experience that equally enthralls the most discerning and the casual music fan. The group’s style has been called “gypsy jazz” after the dynamic string-driven swing created by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli in 1930s Paris, but Jorgenson’s compositions draw in elements from Latin, Romanian, Classical, Rock and Greek music, so “21st Century World Music” is perhaps a more apt description.

Hot food, Twisted Oak Wines, popcorn amd soft drinks will be available for purchase. Outside alcoholic beverages are not allowed.
