A little more about the band:
After relocating to Paris in April 2016, Australian jazz and blues musician Heather Stewart has formed collaborations and performed with musicians from around the world and with the new European Leigh Barker Band at legendary Paris venues such as Le Boeuf sur le Toit, Le Caveau de la Huchette (featured in 'La La Land'), La Bellevilloise, La Coupole at recent feature at Le Bal Blomet. After meeting and jamming with fingerpicking guitarist and bluesman Lucas Montagnier in a tiny Belleville bar, they have rehearsed for 12 months building a formidable new repertoire. On their first busking session on a street corner in Montmartre, the owner of famous Montmartre bar 'Chez Camille' offered them a weekly residency and The Dirty Ragtimers were born.
Heather Stewart's String Swing will feature Heather and guitarist Lucas Montagnier (aka The Dirty Ragtimers) along with Howard Cairns on bass and Jump Session regular Jason Downes on clarinet.
