"A string and brass band playing really old dance-music from New Orleans"
Formed in New Orleans as a collective of several street performing groups, Frog & Henry perform and record old dance and jazz music from the early 1900's on brass and string instruments, with several singers and vocal harmony. Most of our repertoire was obtained by digging up forgotten songs from the dawn of recorded music, in the form of early dance tunes, and from even earlier 19thc sheet music. We've borrowed the phrase 'string and brass band' from the descriptions of the earliest dance and jazz bands. And in that tradition we feature violin and mandolin-banjo as melody instruments along with clarinet and baritone saxophone. We've also designed a foot-operated tuba that allows one person to play tuba and six-string banjo simultaneously. Our typical 5 members can be increased to 8 or 10 if requested. 2018's concert series in W.Europe represents the result of active playing, traveling, and research over the past ten years - of living, partying, and performing in New Orleans - and finally arriving at an ensemble sound that comes as close as we've ever been able to achieve to that of the earliest New Orleans jazz and dance bands.

Toronto folk roots duo ‘Sue and Dwight’ have created a series called ‘Where Have All The Folk Songs Gone’, a sing-a-long tribute to the songs of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s.

It’s a sing-a-long tribute because the songs are so familiar the audience couldn’t be stopped from singing along even if they tried! A four piece ensemble comprised of Sue and Dwight, Michelle Rumball, and Tony Laviola. takes the audience on a musical journey sharing stories and providing historical context highlighting the importance of the songs, which are performed in the style true to the period.

Audiences are transported back to the coffeehouses of the 1960’s Folk Revival. The show includes folk classics like ‘If I Had A Hammer’, ‘Blowin In The Wind’, ‘Walk Right In’, ‘Turn Turn Turn’, ‘Tom Dooley’, ‘Five Hundred Miles’ and many many more.
