Celtic jam spread with Big Swing comes to East End's Jamboree Club
PUBLISHED: 07:00 26 October 2012
A nostalgic evening of live music from the 1920s coupled with a Celtic jam session is planned in the East End next month.
It is a double bill of 1920s Swing for the first half and ‘a cocoon of Celtic sounds’ by Alastair Caplin and his trad troup for the second half.
The London Dance Orchestra and Alastair Caplin’s Celtic Session Feat are performing their free-entry at the Jamboree club at 566 Cable Street in Limehouse on November 6, from 7pm.
Robin Harris and the London Dance Orchestra are also making the Jamboree their Swing Dancing home for three nights and playing a double bill with Celtic Night with their dance music of the 1920s, 30s and 40s.
They complement Caplin and friends who use string and woodwind to create medieval Celtic harmonies with their foot-stomping, whiskey-fuelled jamming sessions.
