About Birkett & Fisk Play Venuti and Lang

The names of Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli are familiar to many as pioneers of string based jazz. Less universally known are the names Joe Venuti and Eddie Lang, the Italian-American duo who played hot violin and guitar jazz in the 1920s and 30s.

Bringing together their shared knowledge and love of early jazz styles, Emma Fisk and James Birkett present an entertaining, virtuosic and informative programme of music inspired by the first great jazz violin and guitar partnership. A typical performance includes compositions by Venuti/Lang such as Cheese & Crackers, Sunshine and Black and Blue Bottom; jazz standards of the 20s and 30s; and specially composed originals that explore the duo’s soundworld. The music is interpersed with musical and biographical snippets that give audiences an insight into the lives and music of these two astonishing musicians.

The hall will be set out at tables and nibbles provided. Audience to bring own drinks and glasses.
