Bill Rutan is an Atlanta treasure, also known as the man of a thousand songs! Here is a rare opportunity to hear him with some of Atlanta's jazz luminaries. A legendary tenor banjo player, Bill has traveled over the world playing with various New Orleans jazz groups and driving every one of them with his impeccable rhythm and extensive vocal repertoire of songs. L.A. Tuten is a versatile musician who has recording credits and is known for being in demand as a local musician; he’s also a former director of Atlanta’s Marching Abominables. Matt Phillips is a multi-talented performer who plays cornet in the style of Bix, plays mandolin and works as an expert repairman of quality violins; he’s also a visual artist known for his drawings and paintings. Mick Kinney is a master of many instruments and a swinging jazz style; he’s an accomplished fiddler, pianist, teacher and musical director. Frank Hamilton’s career spans many years as a folk and early jazz guitar player and singer; he was co-founder of the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago and the Frank Hamilton School in Atlanta.

Irish singer-songwriter Jim Sharkey opens the show!
