The musical workshops for the curious are back fusing gypsy jazz with chill Beach Boys' surf tunes in Ballarat on Friday night.
Small Space Music's Ronny Farrella said there was no clear or purposeful link between the two genres, despite a few common roots like being music for the people. This latest installment was all about being "fun, fun, fun".
"It's more that with the BMI (Ballaarat Mechanics' Institute) music series we celebrate all music styles, and trust that the audience are also the same and are keen to experience different sounds and musical histories in the same night," Mr Farrella said.
Decorated Melbourne guitarist Fran Swinn will lead a pre-concert music workshop on finding your musical style. Swinn is also part of new Melbourne group Fun, Fun, Fun celebrating the surf sounds of the 1960s.
French gypsy swing virtuosos, guitarist Jon Delaney and Salvatore Greco on accordion, were favourites in the 2018 BMI series and return with 1930s melodies.
