Rae Brothers New Orleans Jazz Band @ St. Joseph's CMS Parish Centre. Thursday 4th March.

Rae Brothers New Orleans Jazz Band: Dave Rae (banjo & vocals), Mac Rae (cornet, clarinet & vocals), Liz Bacon (clarinet), Mac Smith (piano), John Robinson (double bass) & Paul Bacon (drums). Jazz at St.Joseph's has been going for many a year and the Rae Brothers have been long-time supporters of the organisers' unstinting efforts to ensure the music of New Orleans can be heard in the town of Birtley. Tunes by Duke Ellington - 'Creole Love Call', George Lewis - 'St .Phillip Street Breakdown', Kid Thomas and others made for an enjoyable evening. Good playing by all (Liz and Mac on clarinets a highlight).
Support jazz in Birtley. The next concert features Maureen Hall's Rendezvous Jazz on 1st April.
