About the event
Elly Hopkins & Stuart Oliver met jamming on the vibrant Bristol jazz scene. Having spent time jamming in New Orleans and Paris, they each share a love of early jazz standards from the 30s and 40s. Taking inspiration from artists like Ella Fitzgerald and Django Reinhardt, a set from Hopkins & Oliver is full of toe-tapping rhythm, mischief and heart, with all the radiance and intimacy of a fireside session.
