Beloved Bainbridge Island gypsy jazz masters Ranger and the Re-Arrangers will perform a special free concert — with special guest Simon Chrisman — at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 22 at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.
Chrisman, a hammered dulcimer virtuoso, grew up on Bainbridge, and brings an unusual style to an instrument previously thought to have limited range. His inventive playing in non-traditional genres is redefining the instrument, and promises a unique twist on the group’s regular offerings.
The concert will feature music from Ranger and the Re-Arrangers’ repertoire of swing standards and traditional gypsy melodies.
