One of the Festival’s most popular events... This year we hit the ground running in the company of Swing Zazou and The Dixie Ticklers; a complete evening of great jazz, and an opportunity to dance away one of the summer’s most enjoyable nights.
Swing Zazou are a hugely popular seven-piece band that mixes gypsy swing with big band sounds – a foot stomping recipe of hot licks, driving beats, swing-scat vocals and vintage swing. They come to Petworth following a string of festival appearances up from the length and breadth of the country, including Wilderness, Larmer Tree and WOMAD.
The evening begins in the hands of traditional ‘jazzers’ The Dixie Ticklers. Led by clarinettist and composer Dom James, the ‘Dixies’ formed in 2005 since which time they have built a fierce live reputation within the jazz, blues and acoustic scenes.
