Destined to be a Festival hit, this all-female traditional super-group from New Orleans are in Edinburgh for the first time. Playing regularly at Preservation Hall, they feature energetic solos, hot rhythmic breaks, and a pad of great old tunes that are great for swinging out.

Leading on hot-trumpet lead (Marla Dixon), driving guitar (Molly Reeves), swinging bass (Julie Schexnayder), the “clarinet darling” of Scott Bradlee’s Modern Jukebox  (Chloe Feoranzo), gutbucket trombone (Haruka Kikuchi) and washboard wiz Defne “Dizzy” Incirlioglu.
