DON VAPPIE & JAZZ CREOLE

21 July 2022


Led by Don Vappie, the award-winning Creole banjoist/vocalist from New Orleans. Vappie is a living embodiment of 300 years of New Orleans music embodying all aspects of the unique melting pot of cultures that is New Orleans. Known for being banjoist/guitarist in Winton Marsalis’ Jazz at the Lincoln Centre band, but more importantly his nurturing approach to Creole culture and its preservation. He is widely considered to be one of the best banjoists in the history of New Orleans.

Honouring the tradition of his predecessor, banjoist Danny Barker, Vappie has singlehandedly kept alive Créole songs of New Orleans and has been honoured with awards from Créole society for preserving this cultural treasure.

 

This US/European project 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”.

Features UK clarinetist David Horniblow of formally the Chris Barber band and recently The Dime Notes, guitarist Dave Kelbie of The Dime Notes, Django a la Creole and accompanist to many musicians worldwide, and from Paris bass player Sebastien Girardot of Django a la Creole fame.
