Part of Live and Unlocked Perth Summer Festival outside on Perth Concert Hall Plaza

The year was 1921. The world was recovering from the First World War and the Spanish Flu pandemic. As people came together again, so began the start of what we now know as the Roaring 20's, a remarkable period in history that saw one of the greatest flourishings of music, art, literature, and architecture. People socialising and audiences filling theatres again were a “symbol of returning to life”.

To mark 100 years of the "first jazz age", multi-award-winning guitarist Martin Taylor MBE and Scottish-Canadian jazz singer Alison Burns embark on their first duo tour in five years to present a concert of jazz songs from the Roaring 20's by composers including Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Berlin and George and Ira Gershwin. Tuxedos and fascinators are optional for this evening of uplifting jazz!

Approx running time: 100 mins including interval

£17.50 (inc £1.50 booking fee per ticket)
