New Orleans Swamp Donkeys

With support from My Fellow Sponges
Music | USA

Date

26 July 8.30pm

The New Orleans Swamp Donkeys are an extremely versatile group of young musicians who play traditional and modern jazz, blues and original music all heavily influenced by New Orleans–derived styles.

Described as early jazz with a modern twist these are passionate musicians who are inspired by the feel of a hot 1910’s New Orleans speakeasy.

Their sound is enormously accessible with their frontman, the Louis Armstrong–sounding, soulful and sweet,  James Williams fronting a very hot band that is resolutely New Orleans jazz.

Support on the night will be provided by My Fellow Sponges, one of Galway’s most exciting live folk-prog/indie acts. They have also played stages at Electric Picnic and Body & Soul.

This is a STANDING event.
