Greenwich Concert to Honor Guitar Legend

Guitarist Frank Vignola will play a concert in celebration of the gypsy genius Django Reinhardt ’s 100th birthday at the Greenwich Library on Sunday.

Vignola, a major proponent of Reinhardt’s style of playing,  has performed and recorded with Ringo Starr, Madonna and Donald Fagen and has been touted as one of Les Paul’s favorite guitarists. In his library appearance, Vignola will revisit the music of Reinhardt more than 50 years after his death.

Born into a family of Romani gypsies, Reinhardt created his own style of traditional gypsy music infused with jazz. After he was badly burned and lost the use of three fingers on his left hand, Reinhardt re-learned to play with two fingers. He went on to become one of jazz guitar’s most influential figures.

The Frank Vignola Trio will perform at the Greenwich Library Cole Auditorium on Sunday, Jan. 9, from 3:30 to 5 p.m. For more information, contact David Waring at (203) 622-7917.
