After last year's sold-out show, Stephane Wrembel and his band are excited to return to Northfield during their spring Midwest tour for a stop at Hot Spot Music's "Giants of Gypsy Jazz" event. Tickets now on sale for general admission and premium seating (front section seats, pre-show "meet the artists" reception and free pass to Sept 9-10 Midwest Gypsy Swing Fest in Madison).
Rolling Stone Magazine has called him “a revelation”. Woody Allen recruited him to score the theme for the smash film “Midnight in Paris”, and he performed the irresistibly catchy original song, “Bistro Fada”, live during the 2012 Academy Awards. He has headlined at Lincoln Center, played major festivals, recorded with mandolin legend David Grisman, toured with master violinist Mark O’Connor and shared stages with everyone from Elvis Costello to Patti Smith to The Roots. The Gitane guitar company has even named a model after him. To say that Stephane Wrembel— who learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside— has already had a remarkable career would be an under-statement. This virtuoso guitarist from France has truly just begun to make his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music.
