Dixie Diehards concert @ Cape Cod Museum of Art
When: Sun Feb 16th
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Where: 60 Hope Lane
The Dixie Diehards jazz band will present “A Musical Trip to New Orleans.”. Highlighting toe-tapping music from the New Orleans of the 1920s and ’30s, the concert will include such numbers as “Basin Street Blues,” “Way Down Yonder in New Orleans,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “Alabama Jubilee” and “The Pearls.”
The band – which has given some 50 concerts throughout southeastern Massachusetts over the past year – was formed in August 2006 by a group of traditional jazz and Dixieland music enthusiasts. The group’s title derives from members’ long-running devotion to early 20th-century jazz music in the style of such New Orleans bands as the Original Dixieland Jass Band and Louis Armstrong’s All-Stars as well as Chicago-area musicians like Muggsy Spanier and Jimmy McPartland.
The program will last about an hour with refreshments to follow. Admission is $12 for museum members, $15 for nonmembers. Reservations are recommended and may be made by calling 508-385-4477, ext. 15.
