Johnston Street Jazz - Thursday 21st of Jan: Dilworth & Barry : Dreaming of New Orleans

Johnston St Jazz

Trumpeter & vocalist Eamon Dilworth has been trudging around Sydney performing social music inspired by the crescent city for over 4 years now. First with Low Down Riders & more recently with his outfit Crawfish Po’Boys. Longer yet though is his friendship with Steve Barry harking back 10 years when they were students at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, practising together and sharing long conversations over red wine and apple pie.

This performance is a foray into songs they’ve written but also standards that have become folklore with inspiration from Dr John, Professor Longhair and Preservation Hall Jazz band.

The music was sensational & the connection & rapport you built with the audience was just amazing, so much fun! You got the whole bar rocking, laughing & singing along – even me, & I never, ever sing in public!! Speaking for myself, I can honestly say that was the best night out I’ve had for ages – & I go out a LOT! Caroline Buckingham Owner/ Licensee Butchers Brew Bar

So refreshing to hear the infectious vibes of New Orleans music infused with the grimier sides of swagger 50s roots coming out of Aus. Makes for potent and addictive love medicine!
