Story of Swing
 
Rose Theatre

Friday 21st July, 7:00pm
Saturday 22nd July, 5.30pm
 
With the Scottish Swing Orchestra and the Fly Right 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.
