Those Gypsy Blues

Nathan River and Jessie Smith

By David Johanssen

After spending the winter in New Orleans, Nathan Rivera and Jessie Andra Smith return to SMA to share the gift of music and perform their original gypsy blues music. Hailing from California, the duo enjoys traveling the world, meeting new friends, and writing tunes of all styles inspired by the lives they lead. Jessie’s jazz guitar and intuitive singing have earned her a special place in the community of SMA. Paired with Nathan Rivera, his eclectic accordion, and fluent improvisation meld with their music to create a truly unique and unforgettable show. Friday, March 20, at 7:30pm and Saturday, March 21, at 7:30pm, Shelter Theater presents Gypsy Blues. These young gypsy-folk musicians have traveled the world to share their gift of good-time music: “Spreading positivity and joy one note at a time!” 150 pesos.
