We’re delighted to host the launch of Pigfoot’s debut album “21st Century Acid Trad“.

“Pigfoot’s debut album not only blows the cobwebs off eight favourites of the trad repertoire, it sandblasts away decades of treacly cliche” Arts Desk

Pigfoot mine their material from the rich seams of New Orleans music; hot jazz, spirituals and blues from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith and Jelly Roll Morton, reconstructed and transformed by the quick wit, imagination and diverse reference points of each musician, resulting in what trumpet player Chris Batchelor describes as “21st Century Acid Trad”.

“Batchelor, a fine trumpeter who intriguingly blends Miles Davis’s shrewd pacing and evocative long-note sounds with something of Harry Beckett’s bubbly phrasing” John Fordham, The Guardian
