GYPSY SWING, RAGTIME & HOT JAZZ
Down a dusty road from the 1930s comes Doctor Stovepipe, a rollicking, old-time ensemble of guitar, bass, fiddle and sweet vocal harmonies. Each appointment is a swinging dose of fun, and a demonstration of how songs evolve and change over time, as they are passed on from one musician to the next. Students learn how the simplest sounds and stories can be turned into toe-tapping tunes and can even write their own lyrics for Doctor Stovepipe to perform in the show.
