Moving On Music Presents
Don Vappie & Jazz Creole
Thurs 10 Nov | 8.00pm | £15.00
Don Vappie, award-winning New Orleans musician and entertainer, is the number one New Orleans Jazz banjoist performing on the planet today. Honouring the tradition of his predecessor, banjoist Danny Barker, Don has kept alive the Créole songs of New Orleans and has been honoured with awards from the Créole Society for preserving this cultural treasure. He embodies all aspects of the unique melting pot of cultures that is New Orleans.
This project with David Horniblow, David Kelbie and Sebastien Girardot, combines all genres of New Orleans from traditional to modern day funk with the classic early tradition of a string band. The result is ‘Jazz Créole’.
