Diplomats of Jazz
Step back into a time when New Orleans and Chicago jazz was played in bars and rough joints and savour Petrie’s distinctive hot cornet and lived-in vocal style, with his road-tested, finely tuned four-piece band.
Joe Gordon Ragtime Banjoes
A Festival institution and always a sell out. The veteran White Heather Club singer and banjo player loves traditional jazz, and plays rags, stomps, blues and swing tunes with Mike Daly on trumpet and Beverley Knight (banjo), Ken MacDonald (bass) and Scott Gordon (drums).
Championed by Ken Colyer and Lonnie Donegan, skiffle blended deep southern blues and country music with British traditional jazz passion. Here’s a fun re-make with Eric Wales, Jerry O'Regan, Hamish McGregor and Ken Ford.
Spirits of Rhythm
Stalwarts of the Edinburgh New Orleans scene and globetrotters to Festival across Europe, Violet Milne’s band epitomises the warmth of New Orleans jazz and feature the best New Orleans style drummer in the north of Britain, Kenny Milne.
John Russell’s band have been a mainstay of Edinburgh Jazz for over 30 years, playing swing and gypsy music from the Django Reinhardt/Duke Ellington era. They’ve changed their personnel lately and ushered in a new chapter in the band’s history – reviving the early enthusiasm and free spirited approach.
The Gramophone Jass Band
The newest (and youngest) band on the Edinburgh traditional jazz scene deliver high energy New Orleans jazz, bringing the world of the 1920s speakeasy back to life.
