We are very excited to launch our new album in An Grianan Theatre in Letterkenny on February 7th!
The album is a LIVE recording of our Boswell Sisters Tribute Show. This particular concert took place in a circus tent on Malin Green (in our hometown) during the Earagail Arts Festival 2019. We had a wonderful audience that night who are now a part of the recording.
Having performed this show at the Galway Arts Festival, Cork Jazz Festival, Derry Jazz Festival, and Earagail Arts Festival this ten-piece ensemble includes a brass and reed section, drums, double bass, guitar, piano and of course close three-part harmonies. Expect to hear popular songs from the 1920's & 1930's (Heebie Jeebies, St. Louis Blues, Mood Indigo) as well as some rarities. The Boswell Sisters were a vocal jazz trio who broke boundaries with their intricate harmonies and rhythmic experimentation. They got the nickname 'syncopating harmonists from New Orleans' and made music that was steeped in jazz, blues, dixieland, ragtime and gospel. They moved to New York in 1931 and made recordings for Brunswick Records with the top jazz musicians around at the time including Jimmy & Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Eddie Lang (guitar), Bunny Berrigan, Manny Klein (trumpet), Stan King (drums).
Our band on the night will be:
Karen McLaughlin - vocals
Lorna McLaughlin - vocals
Joleen McLaughlin - vocals and piano
Peter Vail - guitar
Rohan Armstrong - double bass
James Anderson - drums
Robert Goodman - trumpet
Matt Jennings - tenor sax
