Jazz Portrait: Laurie Palmer on Drums at Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle

Jazz Painting: Commissioned Portrait of Laurie Palmer on Drums

The jazz drummer is usually obscured back stage behind the trumpets, trombones and saxophones, yet he sets the beat for the band. But playing with Burt Butler’s Jazz Pilgrims harbourside in Ramsgate, Kent, during the 2011 Seaside Shuffle Traditional Jazz Festival, Laurie Palmer starred front stage, his drum kit on full display. Watch out for Laurie with Burt’s band on Ramsgate Harbour Parade in July most years during the
Ramsgate Seaside Shuffle Jazz Festival.
