The final concert of the Fontana summer festival will feature the Hot Club of Detroit, whose style is rooted in gypsy jazz rhythms, but whose personnel bring their own modern day influences to the mix.

The group's virtuoso accordionist, Julien Labro, gave Cara Lieurance a crash course in how the band balances its blend of tradition and progress.   

Cara Lieurance covers local music with live morning interviews, and produces WMUK's Let's Hear It weekday mornings at 10 am Mon-Fri, showcasing local interviews and performances. She also produces The Pure Drop, an hour of Celtic music, with musician Dave Marlatt.
