Who are Frog & Henry?

Frog and Henry was formed in New Orleans in 2013, as a street performing group. The original formation was a 7-8 piece with cello, violin(s), banjo(s), gtr, tuba, percussion, harmonica, jugs, and guitarron and vocals. The repertoire used to lean more toward stringband, ragtime, and jugband, with a few jazz tunes. As more jazz festivals and swing dance offered themselves, then the repertoire was adapted for those settings and audiences.

This gig is part of a National tour they are currently undertaking and brings one of London’s best bands to Oxford for a night of dancing.

As always full details are on our Swing Dance Calendar.
