MUSIC: Pearl Django makes the rounds in Whatcom County April 25

The music pioneered by gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and his partner in swing, violinist Stephane Grappelli, is still utter bliss in the esteemed hands of Tacoma’s Pearl Django. With a continuously fresh and entrancing sound, bands like Pearl Django rejuvenate a love for “gypsy swing,” a style that was once the height of sophistication.

They will perform at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 25, at the Sudden Valley Dance Barn, 8 Barn View Road, gate 2. Tickets are $20; call 360-671-1709 for reservations. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Pearl Django will also perform at 7 that evening at Bellewood Acres, 6140 Guide Meridian, south of Lynden, as part of the Apple Blossom and Honey Bee Festival. Admission is $15; reserve tickets at 360-318-7720 or bellewoodfarms.com.
