The band previously known as Agharta Jazz will returns to the Åarhus Gallery for its one year anniversary show, celebrating with a name change. Luna Madidus is the new moniker for the ensemble comprised of vocalist Kristen Burkholder, trumpet and flugelhorn player Mike Whitehead, pianist Tom Luther, bass and French horn player Doug Kennedy and percussionist Jeff Densmore.

Luna Madidus will perform Friday, Feb. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St. A $10 suggested donation will be collected at the door, and refreshments are included.

“Åarhus is a wonderful space that we love to play in. It has a great vibe and a really warm sound,” said pianist and composer Luther.

Luna Madidus will be bringing its spirited, distinctive and vibrant original modern jazz sound to the downtown gallery and all are invited to come and enjoy it. For more information, call 338-0001 or visit aarhusgallery.
