Friday 19 June
Dale Storr with The Sounds of New Orleans

A welcome return for Dale Storr, one of the UK’s leading exponents of New Orleans piano. Inspired by his parents’ record collection of early Rhythm n’ Blues and Rock n’ Roll, he immersed himself from an early age in the evocative music of Dr. John, James Booker, Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint and Fats Domino.

Dale’s spellbinding show ranges from Latin and Blues, to Boogie and Classic Jazz Standards; from Louis Armstrong to Liberace and Rachmaninov to the Warsaw Concerto. It’s a melting pot of mind-blowing music that’s as diverse as the city that inspired it, made more captivating by his tales of the music, architecture, food and culture of New Orleans, not to mention the often risqué stories of his piano heroes, all told with Dale’s characteristic charm and wit.

“A very, very fine piano player indeed!” Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2.

Tickets: £12 advance, £13 door, £1 reduction for Friends of Calstock Arts, £6 under 18s.
