Celebrating 40 Years of Traditional Jazz 30 May 2018
We love great traditional jazz and in our anniversary year we are presenting a host of bands from the Crescent City itself.
New Orleans Swamp Donkeys Traditional Jass Band, Soul Brass Band play a traditional brass band set, and all female group Shake Em Up JazzBand make their Scottish debut. We welcome Stephanie Trick back to the Festival both solo and with her stride pianist husband, Paolo Alderighi.
The Festival kicks off where it all began with a tribute to Jelly Roll Morton. We also featuring The Budapest Ragtime Band and California Feetwarmers and closer to home Bill Salmond Louisiana Ragtime Band and Jim Petrie’s Diplomats of Jazz and Dave Batchelor’s Batchelor’s of Jazz, whilst Alison Affleck and her Copper Cats celebrate A Night In New Orleans with some very special guests.
Plus the amazing 21 piece Bratislava Hot Seranaders evoke the 1920s and 30s dancehalls.
