Blues, Ragtime, Hot Jazz, songs and dances from long ago

Working backwards from the 1930s, the FB Pocket Orchestra explores repertoire that formed the embryo of what is now known as popular music.

The members originally began playing together to explore heritage music and became an official project in 2012, with a debut album released in October of that year. Since then they have performed regularly across the region. They come to The Spring with their ever popular contemporary slant on popular acoustic music from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, transporting you to a time when life was much simpler!

The FB Pocket Orchestra will be holding free open rehearsals in The Spring’s café on Monday 8, 15, 22 and 29 October from 12noon – 1pm. Everyone is welcome to come along to listen.

“Atmospheric, yet vibrant, this charming collection of songs will make you wish you had been born some 100 years ago. The style, glamour and ‘fabulousness’ of this era is captured beautifully on the album”
Claire Anderson Jazz FM
