Gypsy Swing Soirée - Carolyn Packer
Carolyn is steeped in the music of the African American tradition. As well as solo appearances and her own jazz band, she performs, tours and records extensively with local and international blues, jazz, gospel and rock‑n‑roll outfits and performers.
As well as a solo musician, Carolyn leads the jazz band The Stompin' Rhythm Aces. Drawing from various styles – traditional New Orleans and early blues, boogie-woogie and jump swing. And The Garden Party Trio, an ensemble that explores early 60's jazz, rhythm and blues and soulful swing.
