Doors at the venue, located at 94 New Salem St., will open at 7:15.
Daisy Castro started playing violin at the age of 6. The same year that she started playing, she took a trip to France with her parents, where she was first introduced to the style of music known as "Jazz Manouche" or "Gypsy Jazz, " a genre created by Gypsy guitarist, Django Reinhardt, and French violinist, Stephane Grappelli in pre-war Paris. Intrigued as a listener from the start, over the years Castro has found this music to be a perfect fit for her playing style.
She recorded and released her first solo CD, "Gypsy Moth" at the age of 13, which bears a strong Gypsy Jazz influence. Her second CD, recorded at the age of 15, will be released in April.
Castro will be joined for her New England CD release tour by guitarists Ryan Flaherty and Michael Arciero of the Portland-based band The Burners, and bassist Derek Van Wormer of the Boston-based Jason Anick Trio.
Tickets are $10. Seating is general admission. Concert information can be obtained by callingPitman's at: 603 527 0043.
