Hull Jazz Festival are delighted to present two very special shows at Hull Truck Theatre as part of their Summer Edition 2014. First up, on Friday 25th July, Django a la Creole bring their amazing fusion of Gypsy swing, creole and blues from the hot streets of New Orleans to the streets of Hull. Led by clarinettist Evan Christopher, with Sebastien Girardot (double bass) and Dave Kelbie (guitar), they’ll be joined for this show by Don Vappie, the leader of the legendary New Orleans heritage orchestra the Creole Jazz Serenaders.
On Saturday 26th July, two of the country’s best known and most loved guitarists – Mike Walker and Stuart McCallum – come together in a new, intimate acoustic setting. Using five different guitars, they create original music and standards that are re-imagined and re-sculpted into fresh shapes. Mike Walker is acclaimed as guitarist with The Impossible Gentlemen. Stuart is the driving force behind the Cinematic Orchestra.
