Nova Scotia Jazz Band at Fife Jazz Club
Apr 13 @ 14:00

The Nova Scotia Jazz Band is firmly in the tradition of the swinging Dixieland groups led by Eddie Condon, Muggsy Spanier, and Alex Welsh. Featuring the lyrical yet powerful trumpet of Lorne Cowieson, the banjo and guitar wizardry of Duncan ‘Fingers’ Findlay, the genuinely swinging string bass of Andy Sharkey and the clarinet, saxophones and vocals of John Burgess the NSJB are a fresh take on the classic jazz style. Since 2009 the band have appeared at the Glastonbury, Kelburn, Crail, Biggar and Swaledale Festivals, and the Tarragona, Keswick, Bute, Pershore, Shetland, Southport, Ayr, Lockerbie, Glasgow, Fife, Inverurie, Swanage and Edinburgh Jazz Festivals and have played concerts all over the UK with their special guests Roy Williams, Jim Fryer, Ian Bateman, Brian Kellock, Digby Fairweather, Richard Leach, Graham Smith, Gregor Beck and Forrie Cairns.
