THE DIRTY RAGTIMERS (Paris, France) at Montrose Saloon
9 pm - midnight; $5 / 21+
Heather Stewart and Lucas Montagnier
Original sound drenched in history: old blues, ragtime, jazz, folk and spirituals. Great vocals, harmonies, skillful fingerpicking guitar & crying violin.
Swinging jazz, blues, folk and ragtime of the early 1900s string and jug bands, THE DIRTY RAGTIMERS play it all and with sweet harmonies, fiddle and fingerpicking guitar.
After moving to Paris in 2016, Heather Stewart met and jammed with musician Lucas Montagnier in a local bar. The two played all night and have rehearsed regularly ever since. After some cooking gigs and street busking sessions (resulting in gigs offers) Heather and Lucas realised they shared a passion for the repertoire of early jazz, blues, folk and ragtime. They sound like early string or jug bands with harmonies, fingerpicking guitar, fiddle and soaring solo vocals but with sweet and unique style. Performing their repertoire on the streets of Paris, The Dirty Ragtimers are collecting fans from all over and are a band to watch.
