A double bill of fantastic traditional jazz. Ali Affleck leads five fantastic musicians from four countries, reviving the joyful, irreverent and wild music of the past. Playing the melodies and songs that made pioneers of jazz and blues such as Louis Armstrong, Ma Rainey, Jelly Roll Morton, and Sidney Bechet immortal. This bold music is as vibrant and relevant today as it was during the prohibition period and The Janes play with the same rapture and joyous spirit that the original composers intended. A new collaboration for the ever-entertaining Tenement Jazz Band, the band who revive the sounds of traditional New Orleans jazz in Scotland. They are joined by sensational Hungarian boogiewoogie and stride pianist, Cili Marsall for a dynamic, rollicking performance.
