To the cognoscenti of American and Mexican “roots” music, the name Paul Anastasio is legendary. He has played with everybody that matters; Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Asleep at the Wheel; as well as everyone who doesn't matter but should. He lived and played with Joe Venuti (the man who “invented jazz violin in the 20's and 30's); carried Stephan Grappelli’s fiddle to shows; and has spent hundreds of hours playing with and documenting the music of Juan Reynoso, the genius of Mexico’s Tierra Caliente! He has devoted his life to his instrument and is without a doubt one of the greatest living links to the history of the violin in popular music of the 20th century. And he’s playing right here in Olympia. At Swing Wine Bar & Café - for free. Call now and make your reservation. [masked]-9464.
