Dale Storr – The Sound of New Orleans

5 February at 7:00 pm

Described by Jazz Journal magazine as the “piano man’s piano man…” and “a national treasure”, Dale Storr’s musical journey has now brought him recognition as one of the UK’s leading exponents of New Orleans piano. Inspired by his parents record collection of early Rhythm n’ Blues and Rock n’ Roll, the evocative music of New Orleans quickly became a passion for the young pianist. He immersed himself into the styles of heroes like Dr. John, James Booker, Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, Fats Domino and Huey ‘Piano’ Smith to name but a few. His piano studies took him to Sheffield where he established himself as a highly sought-after pianist backing many top blues stars from the U.K. and America. Get ready for an emotional rollercoaster ride of the music and tales of the great New Orleans piano players. “A very, very fine piano player indeed” – Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2 “Dale is the best New Orleans player I’ve ever heard” – Richard Hawley
