New Century Ragtime Orchestra

Heavy rain deterred me from making the journey back in time to North Shields for the concert at the Saville Exchange by the New Century Ragtime Orchestra so, by way of an apology to Dave, Steve and co., I have attached the YouTube link below. I'm grateful to John Taylor for bringing it to my attention. New Century Ragtime Orchestra The delightful vocal on "Never Say Never Again Again" is by Caroline Irwin and the humourous announcements are by Steve Andrews. I think the videos are from the Whitley Bay Jazz Festival.

Sod it! I wish I'd defied the rain and gone.
Next time for sure.
