Darlington New Orleans Jazz presents ‘A Salute to Trad Jazz’ with the Pedigree Jazz Band on Saturday 1st June 2019 at St. Augustine’s Parish Centre, Larchfield Street, Darlington DL3 7TG.

Chris Walker, band leader, has for over 30 years presented a weekly Jazz Programme broadcast by radio stations all over the world. He is also a fine musician and was founder member of the famous Real Ale and Thunder Band whose many appearances included ‘Songs of Praise’ for the BBC.

A while ago he decided to get back to his roots and recreate the hit tunes of the British ‘Trad’ boom of the 1950s and 1960s and formed The Pedigree Jazz Band

In their show ‘Salute to Trad Jazz’ they play the most popular tunes of the era, such as ;Midnight in Moscow’, ‘Petite Fleur’, ‘Green Leaves of Summer’ and many others.

The band has proved to be a resounding success with rave reviews and repeat bookings from nearly everywhere they perform.

This is their first visit to Darlington and Darlington New Orleans Jazz so look out for another outstanding day of classic jazz.
