Severn Jazzmen

When the great trad jazz revival swept the UK in the 1950s and 60s Bristol was one of the country’s hot-spots, producing stars like the late, great Acker Bilk and others and spawning a host of great local bands including the Severn Jazzmen.

Formed over 50 years ago the band have kept the flame of New Orleans ‘Dixieland’ jazz burning in Bristol ever since, not least as long term regulars on the stage of the Old Duke pub.
