Saffron Hall is delighted to be part of this year’s Saffron Walden Carnival. As part of this year’s festivities we will be presenting the Pasadena Roof Orchestra – in association with the Saffron Walden Round Table.
This event will take place in the Carnival Marquee on Saffron Walden Common.
Since 1969 the Pasadena Roof Orchestra has been faithfully recreating the glories of popular music from the 1920’s and 1930’s. The fun-packed show features timeless classics from the great American song book – those wonderful songs that miraculously lifted people’s spirits during the depression era, and which made household names of singers such as Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly, and Fred Astaire. The musicians master the arrangements and sound of the fabled American orchestras such as Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson, whilst also paying tribute to the great British dance Bands like Ray Noble or Ambrose.
Presenting the show, and putting on the top hat white tie and tails, is the suave singer and band leader Duncan Galloway. So pack up your troubles, come on get happy, and experience an evening of superlative live music, with more than a dash of wit and humour.
This concert will finish at approximately 4.30pm
