South Street Swing is a collaboration between vocalist, fiddler, and saxophonist Maggie McRae and jazz guitarist and vocalist Mark Phillips that seeks to revitalize great American songbook tunes as performed by Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, and other classic jazz vocalists. Based in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, McRae and Phillips take inspiration from jazz duet ensembles like Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass, as well as contemporary artists like Diana Krall, to create memorable, foot-tapping musical experiences for both traditional and modern listeners.
Refreshments available. This event is part of our Third Friday (mostly) Swing series at Dewey Hall. Every month a beginner swing dance lesson is followed by a live band and dancing.
