National flat-picking guitar champion Peter McLaughlin and violinist, gypsy jazz aficionado and composer Nick Coventry will perform in Tubac’s 1885 school house. An artist in residence with the Arizona Commission on the Arts, McLaughlin has performed with a variety of bands including The Sonoran Dogs. He toured nationally and internationally as guitarist and harmony vocalist with Laurie Lewis’s band. Nick, at age 20, started his first gypsy swing band, “Les Gendarmes du Swing” and began writing and performing around his hometown of Goleta, California. In 2005 he traveled to the famous Djangofest at Samois-sur-Seine, France to meet and play with the best European musicians of Gypsy jazz. This resulted in a series of tours around Spain, England, Scotland and Denmark with the Hot Club of Galicia. He’s performed at the Djangofest in San Francisco with Gonzalo Bergara, as a guest with the John Jorgenson Quintet, with the Stephane Wrembel trio in New York, and with Alfonso Ponticelli and Swing Gitan at Chicago’s Green Mill.
