Sammy Rimington Stars in Canterbury

Sammy Rimington International Band at the 2011 Canterbury Festival

Sammy Rimington and his International Jazz Band starred in the magnificent setting of King’s School’s historic Shirley Hall on 17 October during the Canterbury Festival. Joined by Fredrik John (trombone), Emile van Pelt (piano), Norman Emberson (drums), Eric Webster (banjo) and Trefor Williams (string bass), the band’s legendary repertoire of New Orleans jazz classics reverberated around the brilliantly acoustical setting from front of stage right up into the gallery. Jazz fans were enthralled and concert goers captivated by the band’s matchless range.

The Canterbury Festival billing was just one of eight shows during Sammy’s 2011 Annual UK tour.
