Dom Pipkin: Smokin' Boogie
Description
One of Europe's most authentic and spirited blues and jazz piano players, Dom Pipkin brings his acclaimed one man show to FAC with a rollercoaster ride through the rich world of New Orleans, featuring astonishing stories and some truly breathtaking piano.

Brothels and barrelhouses, love, sex and tragedy, chasing the rushin lady. voodoo spells and Mardi Gras Queens, the colourful lives of Jelly Roll Morton, Professor Longhair and the drug-fuelled funk and psychedelia of Dr John and James Booker are conjured up in all their technicolour glory in their rawest setting - a man, a piano, a glass of bourbon and panama hat.

Pipkin has performed extensively in New Orleans, and shared stages with international icons Allen Toussaint, Dr John, and Screamin Jay Hawkins.
