Jazz on the Lawn at Hestercombe
7 July 2019 - 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| £4 – £15
Jazz on the Lawn at Hestercombe.
The FB Pocket Orchestra kick start summer with hot jazz, blues, ragtime and dances from the 1920s and 1930s. Bring a picnic, find a spot on the Orangery Lawn and get your toes tapping!
Expect blues, hot jazz, ragtime, waltzes, songs and dances from long ago and far away! Working backwards from the 1930s, the FB Pocket Orchestra explores a repertoire that formed the embryo of what is now known as popular music.
The members originally began playing together simply as an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire – taking on a few informal performances and recording dates as schedules allowed.
Gates open at 5pm, the music begins at 6pm.
