Jazz Portrait: Burt Butler on Banjo. Watch out for Burt at Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle

Jazz Portrait of Burt Butler on Banjo

Burt Butler and His Jazz Pilgrims hail from Kent where they play a variety of venues. My jazz painting and portrait captures Burt during a session in Whitstable back in 2009. During trips to New Orleans, Burt plays with Steam Boat Willie and his New Orleans Jazz Band at Cafe Beignet on Bourbon Street where I was privileged to take jazz photographs of the band
for future jazz portraits.

Watch out for Burt’s Jazz Pilgrims on Ramsgate’s Harbour Parade each July during the annual Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle Jazz Festival.

Burt on Banjo

Trad Jazz at its best
With Burtie Butler on banjo,
Each gig a joyous quest
For the New Orleans beat to flow,
As he and his Pilgrims reach for the grail.

I write a poem to accompany each fine art print of my jazz paintings and for Burt, what better than to describe his quest for traditional jazz!

“I have in my possession one large, wonderful print! I am very impressed! I must get it framed and on the wall in my study. I love the way you made my hair look –
you should be a hair stylist as well.”

Burt Butler, Jazz Pilgrims
