Tickets for The Dirty Ragtimers' The Fairytales of Montmartre launch were sold out this December in Paris's illustrious venue Le Bal Blomet.

Duke Ellington, Josephine Baker, Sidney Bechet are some of the top musicians who shared this stage.

Enormous thanks to everyone who came out. Paris was in full strike mode so it wasn't easy to get there or to get home afterwards. Thanks for buying so many albums too and we hope you're loving listening!

Great collection of blues, hot jazz and bewdiful originals written by Leigh Barker.

With many album collaborations, City With No Name is her second album under her own name that follows album Get Your Fingers Off It! - live multiple award winning tribute to the great women blues and country singers.
