About

Smitty's Big Four specialises in what they call "chamber swing"; dynamic, virtuosic, pieces played with bulletproof tightness and tender lyricism. The band is rooted in such interpretations of masters Jelly Roll Morton, Scott Joplin and other early greats of American roots music. The Big Four's unique combination of trumpet, soprano sax/clarinet, guitar and bass, separates the group from traditional Dixieland groups with the omission of drums and piano. This streamlined formation allows the band to navigate New Orleans and swing standards with unparalleled energy and tightness while maintaining the melodic integrity of the canon. The band is made up of Pete Horsfall, Giacomo Smith, Dave Archer, and Ferg Ireland. Our intimate Late Night Jazz series presents sensational music in the relaxed setting of the Elgar Room. The series is part of a wide range of events to enjoy beyond the main stage. For more information  click here.
