Description

The acclaimed Hot Club of San Francisco and the popular French vocalist Isabelle Fontaine have created “Meet Me in Paris,” a charming concert invoking an unforgettable Parisian experience.

Love songs and driving gypsy jazz are a combination made famous during the ‘20s and ‘30s in Paris by the legendary Hot Club de France, Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli. Following the First World War, the city became a gathering place for artists from around the world and The Hot Club’s unique sound of gypsy jazz reflects this inter-wartime collection of cultures. Keep time with the strum of the rhythm guitars and let the magical guitar and fiddle solos take you on a ride down the Seine and through the heart of the city.
