The Center for the Arts presents Summer of Music Concert No. 5 tonight at Two Rivers Park.

Gipsy Moon from Nederland will deliver its version of indie-folk, Latin rhythms, jazzy vocals and gypsy swing.

Here’s what they say:

“Gipsy Moon is a four-piece group of artists on an endless musical journey, sharing songs with the hopes of planting inspiration into the soul, starting a fire in the heart, and building community that invokes love in its wildest manifestations.

“The four members, Silas Herman (mandolin, guitar, vocals), Mackenzie Page (guitar, tenor banjo, vocals), Matt Cantor (bass, vocals) and Andrew Conley (cello) write all original material about nature, sunsets, mountain rain and love. With soothing harmonies, soul-stirring poetry and instrumentals that make the hips sway as they blend the genres that hippies and poets, lovers and dancers, freaks and families alike can all come together to sing and dance until the sun comes up.”

Opening for this ensemble is the guitar, bass and percussion of local band Valle Musico, which combines classical, Latin and jazz. This new collaboration consists of guitarists Pat Winger and John Ramo, percussionist Brett Gould and bassist Bruce Imig. With a musical mission to bring new interpretations of classical, jazz and worldbeat music to audiences, Valle Musico has a focus that explores the confluence of these genres.

Here’s how they came to be: “Valle Musico was inspired by John Ramo’s meeting the musical icon Paul Simon in his apartment in New York City when ‘Graceland’ was first released in 1987. His conversation with Paul Simon inspired John, especially when Paul Simon stated that music, for him, was essentially about ‘guitars and percussion.’

“This theme forms the basis of Valle Musico’s musical collaboration — an exploration of guitars and percussion, the improvisational and notated aspects of classical, jazz, world beat musical genres and how they blend, combine and fuse.”

The evening of music starts at 6:30, rain or shine. No smoking, no pets and no glass containers. Aug. 3 is the Summer of Music finale.
