    The Story of Swing | Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival

  • When
    21 July 19:00 - 22:00
  • With the Scottish Swing Orchestra, Lorna Reid, Luca Manning - Vocalist and the Fly Right Dance Company Dancers.

    The Swing Era brought us so much classy music, from jazz to mainstream pop, from Glenn Miller to Duke Ellington; Frank Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald. Dave Batchelor presents the story of this extraordinary time in music, words, dance, and pictures, with Scotland’s leading swing big band, and the doyens of Charelston, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug and Ragtime Dance, The Flyright Dance Company, all illustrated with live visuals. The show takes you on a breathless race through swing – the pop music of the 30s and 40s – stopping off at Harlem, Tin Pan Alley, The Apollo Ballroom, Broadway, and Hollywood. It’s a tale of musical legends, fun, and good times. A great night out.
