Local heroes eh!2019 LINEUP: Red Hippo

Red Hippo is Peadar Long, Daz Jones and Simon Chantler. They play saxophones, sousaphone, fiddle, whistles, bass clarinet, stompbox, flute, and even the highland bagpipes.

Red Hippo are a truly unique trio, who combine Jazz, Folk and World music to create compositions which are accessible yet challenging. Red Hippo take the listener on instrumental journeys influenced as much by Swedish traditional folk music as by New Orleans Second Line Jazz, Reggae and Dub. They respectfully nod towards The Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Bellowhead, Filafolket and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and yet don’t sound like any of them.

Red Hippo finish our Saturday afternoon concert.
