The Dirty Ragtimers
Tickets for The Dirty Ragtimers' The Fairytales of Montmartre launch were sold out this December in Paris's illustrious venue Le Bal Blomet. The Bal Blomet was the place every famous or infamous person of the 1920s came to perform or to be seen. 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.
"Heather Stewart's ability to stretch phrases subtly over the bar line gives her vocals a seductive, slightly world-weary quality, and her fiddle playing contains echoes of old-time country and folk styles." Jessica Nicholas - THE AGE
