Children's interactive gigs and Western Swing with pizza
27 July 2015
There’s something for all the family at Marsden Jazz Festival. Join Artful Playground for two fabulous interactive musical stories and get down on the farm for Western Swing with pizza at the Cowshed with the Rip Roaring Success.
Two interactive concerts for children from Artful Playground
Younger audiences at Marsden Jazz Festival are in for a treat when we are joined by musicians from Artful Playground for two interactive illustrated musical stories. Written by Siena Lloyd (Swing Commanders and The Gelatos), these interactive musical stories are aimed at children aged 3-7 and for children with special educational needs. Stories are brought to life as the children are invited in to take part and become the characters, sing songs and play games with the story leader.
Join in a wonderful mix of fun and learning and go on an imaginative journey together with Lolly, a girl who dreams of adventure and runs away from the circus to see the world, and Davy Denture, who everyone expects to be a dentist when he grows up, but he wants to be something else and goes off on a special adventure.
Get down on the farm for pizza and Western Swing
The friendly folk from Edibles at Paddock Farm are welcoming Marsden Jazz Festival visitors to their converted cowshed for a lunchtime gig with The Rip Roaring Success. They’ll be firing up their outdoor cob pizza oven and passing round slices of delicious homemade pizza.
The Rip Roaring Success are the hottest Western Swing Band East of El Paso, where Harlem hot jazz meets country fiddle. Featuring Wild Lucy Williams on double bass, the inimitable Nicole J. Terry on smokin’ hot fiddle and the one and only Russ Williams on flamin’ geetar and hillbilly vox.
