Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St., will welcome Ameranouche Friday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. Although it will be the award-winning trio’s first time playing at Åarhus, they have delighted audiences at Belfast’s New Year’s by the Bay many times with their gypsy jazz sound of traditional and largely original music inspired by legendary Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt.

Ameranouche is a two-time winner of Best of New Hampshire awards as well as being veterans of the famed Newport Jazz Festival. They continue to tour nationally year-round and have released two albums. The energetic trio features, on French acoustic jazz guitars, the melodic virtuosity of Richard Sheppard; plus the vehement rhythm chops of Zach Pearson and Stephen Gibson keeping the bottom end lively with his stand-up bass.

The $12 suggested donation at the door includes cider, tea and snacks. CDs will be available for purchase. For more information, call 338-0001.
