The Scottish Swing Orchestra presents The Story of Swing
With the Flyrights Dancers
The Swing Era brought us so much classy music: 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, The Scottish Swing Orchestra, and the doyens of Charleston, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug and Ragtime dance, The Fly Right Dance Company; all illustrated with live visuals. A huge hit at Edinburgh Festival, the show takes you on a breathless race through swing – the pop music of the 1930s and 40s – stopping off at Harlem, Tin Pan Alley, The Apollo Ballroom, Broadway, and Holywood. It’s a tale of musical legends, fun, and good times. A great night out.
